User Experiences

Users initially thought that creating and signing credentials using a text editor and the KeyNote command-line utilities was somewhat cumbersome (e.g., great care had to be taken with whitespace, so that signatures would be correct). This was quickly addressed with a Perl script that streamlined the process.

Sending credentials for each file over to the server proved to be inconvenient when large numbers of files were involved. A solution offering more end-user transparency is desirable.
