The code-signing cert appears to be a juicy target. I'm not sure how
Debian is handling the key signing and secret security. Ability to
stealthily compromise individual boxes by MITMing updates or brick
the entire FBX network in a wide area.
It would be probably also a good idea to firewall network connections
to other Freedomboxes, disable password logins by default and audit
the SSH key/cert generation to make sure there's enough entropy.
