[liberationtech] secure download tool - doesn't exist?!?

A "security engineered" downloader design is Thandy.

Still, I agree that a less 'perfect' installer might be easier to put
together and actually get into use, if you combine the product with a
larger "SECURE DOWNLOADS NOW" campaign that teaches people about
signatures and the possible attacks, with a nice video, and a nice comic
strip.

Thinking about it, a nicely crafted comic strip could feature different
aspects of secure communication, and be reused for multiple
issues/stories/campaigns (HTTPS, Tor, PGP, OTR, ...).
