At a glance, it looks a useful addition to the Boost repertoire.

Two questions:

1 Is it bound to be header-only? Or is it just that you haven't tried to make it header-only?

2 Some references to vulnerability as a security feature would be useful.
Is this a weakness in its role as tamper-evident packaging, or in other applications?
