Git is cryptographically secure, but it’s not foolproof. If you’re taking work from others on the internet and want to verify that commits are actually from a trusted source, Git has a few ways to sign and verify work using GPG.

It is basically a distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.
