Figure 3 should say private key rather than public key (the text above the diagram is correct, its just the diagram that is wrong)

    Including the private key in the assembly would make the whole process pointless. The private key is used to encrypt the hash. The encrypted hash and public key are stored in the assembly. That is what the text above the figure says and the figure correctly reflects the text.

      The point the previous poster tried to make was that the arrow from the hash to the public key and then into the assembly makes it look like the hash is modified with the public key and stored in the assembly.
