True.. but just to be clear, we're talking about a specific (but
common) scenario, which is when a user downloads the signing key via
zypper ref, automatically answering "Trust Always?" with yes.

In this scenario what we have today is delivery of that key via HTTP.
I'm suggesting we change this to HTTPS, which is much more secure.

That key isn't confidential (or is it?), so what might be gained by
enabling https ?

Delivery of the key is vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle attack when
using only HTTP.

Are the signing keys somewhere shown in the WebUI?
