Random Real-life Quote: Q: What about OpenSUSE's download redirector? Does it increase or decrease my security? A: OpenSUSE's download redirector increases the user's security because metadata is served directly by the download redirector. This means that the client gets the metadata from a trusted source (not a mirror). While this doesn't protect against all of the attacks a client may face (such as endless data attacks by mirrors or replay attacks by a man-in-the-middle attacker), it does make it much more difficult for an attacker to successfully impact a client. We strongly recommend that openSUSE users use the download redirector (as is done by default) since it increases their resistance to attack.
