       apt-key - APT key management utility


       apt-key [--keyring filename] [command] [arguments...]


       apt-key is used to manage the list of keys used by apt to authenticate
       packages. Packages which have been authenticated using these keys will
       be considered trusted.


       add filename
           Add a new key to the list of trusted keys. The key is read from
           filename, or standard input if filename is -.

       del keyid
           Remove a key from the list of trusted keys.

       export keyid
           Output the key keyid to standard output.

           Output all trusted keys to standard output.

           List trusted keys.

           List fingerprints of trusted keys.

           Pass advanced options to gpg. With adv --recv-key you can download
           the public key.

           Update the local keyring with the archive keyring and remove from
           the local keyring the archive keys which are no longer valid. The
           archive keyring is shipped in the archive-keyring package of your
           distribution, e.g. the ubuntu-archive-keyring package in Ubuntu.

           Work similar to the update command above, but get the archive
           keyring from an URI instead and validate it against a master key.
           This requires an installed wget(1) and an APT build configured to
           have a server to fetch from and a master keyring to validate. APT
           in Debian does not support this command and relies on update
           instead, but Ubuntu's APT does.


       Note that options need to be defined before the commands described in
       the previous section.

       --keyring filename
           With this option it is possible to specify a specific keyring file
           the command should operate on. The default is that a command is
           executed on the trusted.gpg file as well as on all parts in the
           trusted.gpg.d directory, though trusted.gpg is the primary keyring
           which means that e.g. new keys are added to this one.


           Keyring of local trusted keys, new keys will be added here.
           Configuration Item: Dir::Etc::Trusted.

           File fragments for the trusted keys, additional keyrings can be
           stored here (by other packages or the administrator). Configuration
           Item Dir::Etc::TrustedParts.

           Local trust database of archive keys.

           Keyring of Ubuntu archive trusted keys.

           Keyring of Ubuntu archive removed trusted keys.
