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	 asso-
       ciated 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  man-
       ual matches what's available.
