GETKEY(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		     GETKEY(1)

NAME
     getkey -- fetch one or more keys from an OpenPGP keyserver

SYNOPSIS
     getkey keyid...

DESCRIPTION
     The getkey	utility	invokes	GnuPG to fetch one or more keys	from an
     OpenPGP keyserver.

RETURN VALUES
     The getkey	utility	exits 0	on success, and	>0 if an error occurs.

ENVIRONMENT
     If	the KEYSERVERS variable	is set in the environment, getkey will use it
     to	determine which	keyservers to fetch the	keys from, instead of using
     pool.sks-keyservers.net.

     If	the standard HTTP_PROXY	variable is set, and NOKEYPROXY	is not,	then
     getkey will pass a	--http-proxy parameter to gpg(1).

FILES
     The getkey	utility's operation is currently not directly affected by any
     files.

EXAMPLES
     Fetch some	keys from a keyserver:

	   getkey 2527DF13 16194553

     Explicity specify the keyserver to	use:

	   env KEYSERVERS=subkeys.pgp.net getkey 2527DF13

SEE ALSO
     gpg(1)

HISTORY
     The getkey	utility	was written by Peter Pentchev in 2000.
