pub struct Unknown { /* private fields */ }
Expand description

Holds an unknown packet.

This is used by the parser to hold packets that it doesn’t know how to process rather than abort.

This packet effectively holds a binary blob.

A note on equality

Two Unknown packets are considered equal if their tags and their bodies are equal.

Implementations

Returns a new Unknown packet.

The security requirements of the hash algorithm for self-signatures.

A cryptographic hash algorithm usually has three security properties: pre-image resistance, second pre-image resistance, and collision resistance. If an attacker can influence the signed data, then the hash algorithm needs to have both second pre-image resistance, and collision resistance. If not, second pre-image resistance is sufficient.

In general, an attacker may be able to influence third-party signatures. But direct key signatures, and binding signatures are only over data fully determined by signer. And, an attacker’s control over self signatures over User IDs is limited due to their structure.

These observations can be used to extend the life of a hash algorithm after its collision resistance has been partially compromised, but not completely broken. For more details, please refer to the documentation for HashAlgoSecurity.
