Been reading about this stuff for hours. I gotta say that spf might be the
thing to try first. It does not prove who you are, but it is supposed to

prove you 'are you'.

SO I will do that first (especially since it does not require any
installation stuff)

On a side note...just got the RHEL annoucement. Huge kernel patch
