NAME

       apt-key - APT key management utility

SYNOPSIS

       apt-key [--keyring filename] {add filename | del keyid | export keyid |
               exportall | list | finger | adv | update | net-update |
               {-v | --version} | {-h | --help}}

DESCRIPTION

       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.

COMMANDS

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

           It is critical that keys added manually via apt-key are verified to
           belong to the owner of the repositories they claim to be for
           otherwise the apt-secure(8) infrastructure is completely
           undermined.

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

       export keyid
           Output the key keyid to standard output.

       exportall
           Output all trusted keys to standard output.

       list
           List trusted keys.

       finger
           List fingerprints of trusted keys.

       adv
           Pass advanced options to gpg. With adv --recv-key you can e.g.
           download key from keyservers directly into the the trusted set of
           keys. Note that there are no checks performed, so it is easy to
           completely undermine the apt-secure(8) infrastructure if used
           without care.

       update
           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           the local keyring the archive keys which are no longer valid.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-keyring package in Ubuntu.

       net-update
           Perform an update working similarly to the update command above,
           but get the archive keyring from a 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,
           relying on update instead, but Ubuntu's APT does.

OPTIONS

       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 particular 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.

FILES

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

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

       /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg
           Local trust database of archive keys.

       /usr/share/keyrings/ubuntu-archive-keyring.gpg
           Keyring of Ubuntu archive trusted keys.

       /usr/share/keyrings/ubuntu-archive-removed-keys.gpg
           Keyring of Ubuntu archive removed trusted keys.
