;;; Commentary:

;; Canlock is a library for generating and verifying Cancel-Lock and/or
;; Cancel-Key header in news articles.  This is used to protect articles
;; from rogue cancel, supersede or replace attacks.  The method is based
;; on draft-ietf-usefor-cancel-lock-01.txt which was released on November
;; 3rd 1998.  For instance, you can add Cancel-Lock (and possibly Cancel-
;; Key) header in a news article by using a hook which will be evaluated
;; just before sending an article as follows:
;; (add-hook '*e**a*e-header-hook 'canlock-insert-header t)
;; Verifying Cancel-Lock is mainly a function of news servers, however,
;; you can verify your own article using the command `canlock-verify' in
;; the (raw) article buffer.  You will be prompted for the password for
;; each time if the option `canlock-password' or `canlock-password-for-
;; verify' is nil.  Note that setting these options is a bit unsafe.
