I'm not entirely sure I follow this logic. Lots of things authenticate
against FAS. The source code for every bit of this web application is
open source and available for review. Do you trust Bodhi? How about
pkgdb? Or koji? Barring some specific security vulnerability (which you
haven't pointed out), this criticism seems unfounded.
