Package verification guide

This section contains quick instructions on how to validate the release PGP signatures.

1.. Download the KEYS file from the Apache website


It is very important to only download KEYS file from the Apache server which is mentioned above.

2.. Import KEYS file

   gpg --import KEYS
   gpg: key 42721F00: public key "Paul Querna <...>" imported
   gpg: Total number processed: 1
   gpg:               imported: 1
   gpg: 3 marginal(s) needed, 1 complete(s) needed, PGP trust model
   gpg: depth: 0  valid:   1  signed:   0  trust: 0-, 0q, 0n, 0m, 0f, 1u
   gpg: next trustdb check due at 2011-10-30</pre>

3.. Verify package with .asc signature file

gpg --verify apache-libcloud-3.8.0.whl.asc apache-libcloud-3.8.0.whl
gpg: Signature made Wed Oct  6 15:31:35 2010 CDT using DSA key ID 42721F00
gpg: Good signature from "Paul Querna <...>"
gpg:                 aka "Paul Querna <...>"
gpg:                 ...</span>
gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
gpg:          There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.
Primary key fingerprint: 39F6 691A 0ECF 0C50 E8BB  849C F788 75F6 4273.8.00
