rpmkeys - RPM Keyring


   rpmkeys {--import|--checksig}


   The general forms of rpm digital signature commands are

   rpmkeys --import PUBKEY ...

   rpmkeys {-K|--checksig} PACKAGE_FILE ...

   The  --checksig  option checks all the digests and signatures contained
   in PACKAGE_FILE to ensure the integrity and origin of the package. Note
   that  signatures  are  now  verified  whenever  a  package is read, and
   --checksig is useful to  verify  all  of  the  digests  and  signatures
   associated with a package.

   Digital  signatures  cannot be verified without a public key.  An ASCII
   armored public key can be added to the rpm database using --import.  An
   imported  public key is carried in a header, and key ring management is
   performed exactly like package management. For example,  all  currently
   imported public keys can be displayed by:

   rpm -qa gpg-pubkey*

   Details about a specific public key, when imported, can be displayed by
   querying.  Here's information about the Red Hat GPG/DSA key:

   rpm -qi gpg-pubkey-db42a60e

   Finally, public keys can be erased after importing just like  packages.
   Here's how to remove the Red Hat GPG/DSA key

   rpm -e gpg-pubkey-db42a60e



   rpmkeys  --help  -  as  rpm  supports  customizing the options via popt
   aliases it's impossible to  guarantee  that  what's  described  in  the
   manual matches what's available.
