Mozdev's code is stored in the Hovercraft [1] project.  You can access it's 
code here:

The backend for secure installations mostly consists of checking download 
files as they're committed to CVS and providing a UI for project owners to 
verify those hashes.

There will then be a frontend that allows users to install verified, 
publically released files using InstallTrigger() [2] through a secure site.

I'm not sure how much of this system would be reusable for other sites.  This 
will be available for all Mozdev projects to use once it's released.
