rpmkeys - RPM Keyring

RPMKEYS(8) System Manager's Manual RPMKEYS(8)

NAME

rpmkeys - RPM Keyring

SYNOPSIS

rpmkeys {--import|--checksig}
 

DESCRIPTION

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.
