A Practical Guide to Using Signed RubyGems

Speaking of gems, the guys at Meldium wrote up a nice blog post about using signed gems. After the security breach that affected RubyGems a few weeks ago, several people pointed to the fact that by now we should all be using signed gems to add a layer of security.

Bradley Buda from the Meldium team open sourced a tool that lets you check which gems from your Gemfile have been signed and which trust policy you can use with them.

I think it’s important to note that the trust policy is only used when installing a gem for the first time.
