Gateway as trusted agent

I wanted to check my understanding of IPFS gateways. As I understand it they might be more accurately referred to as trusted gateways because there are no cryptographic guarantees that the file returned by the gateway actually match the CID requested nor is there any way to test that it is. To test that the file matches the CID you’d need to know various parameters like the chunker used which isn’t available.

@zacharywhitley That is my understanding as well, but I’m certainly not an expert, but am now watching this thread for whatever the “in-the-know” response is.
