Issue Details states that

The PowerShellGet publish-module, install-module, save-module, and update-module cmdlets will check the signature to ensure it is valid, then confirm that the hash value for each item matches what is in the catalog.

Looks like the docs do not reflect what Save-Module actually does.

Save-module does not validate the signature, which was deliberate.

You can confirm this by running the commands, and adding –Verbose to your command, as in

  Save-Module –name PowerShellGet –Path c:\temp\ -Verbose

Then compare with

 Install-Module –Name PowerShellGet –Verbose –Force

(Force was added so I install over the existing version)

When you compare those results, you will see that we validate the CAT file on Install, but not on Save.
