comment How does zeroing out/wiping your disk before encrypting it increase op-sec?
If you don't "wipe" the disk then the attacker can make out which sectors you actually rewrote in the course of machine usage, which might (just might) leak a tiny bit of information about your usage pattern (average size of created files, or something like that). It is not a very serious leak.

comment How does an attack on a digital signature work?
Public and private key are mathematically linked together; this is what the expression "key pair" means. The owner of the public key is who knows the private key. From the outside, you see only the public key; you do not care how Bob really manages to produce signature, only that he is the only one who can make signatures that match his public key.
