In fact, it does not really make sense for someone to bother about verifying the accuracy of information unless acquiring true beliefs is her goal.
This suggests that another technique for verifying the accuracy of a piece of information is to see if other information sources corroborate the original source of the information (cf.
If sources do conflict, then people simply have to determine which source is more reliable (or use some of the other techniques for verifying the accuracy of the information).
(25) This may explain why library and information scientists have not focused on this particular technique for verifying the accuracy of information.

But controversy surrounds NIST's choice of an unfamiliar mathematical algorithm as the federal standard for generating and verifying a digital signature.
"We evaluated a number of alternative digital signature techniques and considered a variety of factors in this review." Those factors included the degree of security provided, the ease of implementation in both hardware and software, the ease of export from the United States, the applicability of patents, and the level of efficiency for generating and verifying signatures.
