It is an example of how it would look, I have done it with “mspaint”.
Well, I’ll explain it to you. The problem with vulnerabilities is that if someone or something accesses the system, they could install malicious software to exploit the vulnerability suffered by the processor.
This checkbox 1) prevents the installation of software not signed and certified by IPFire developers and 2) notifies about modifications made to the system.
The first by enabling the installation of anything that is not in the official repositories and checking the signature and second, by means of a watchdog that analyzes the integrity of the system.
I am thinking that to enable / disable this function, you would need a password other than that of admin / root that would be established in the “setup” (in case you enter the IPFire).
I don’t know if it would be necessary or if this feature would be superfluous due to the existing strength of IPFire.
Perhaps with this it would not matter so much that the computer suffers from vulnerabilities. For example:
I understand (correct me if I’m wrong) that to exploit the vulnerabilities you must have access to the system to voluntarily / unintentionally install software that exploits the vulnerability. It can be you who unintentionally does it or a hacker who accesses the system and compromises the system.
