       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 sig-
       natures 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.
