SYNOPSIS

getkey keyid...

DESCRIPTION

The getkey utility invokes GnuPG to fetch one or more keys from an OpenPGP keyserver.

RETURN VALUES


.Ex -std

ENVIRONMENT

If the KEYSERVERS variable is set in the environment, getkey will use it to determine which keyservers to fetch the keys from, instead of using pool.sks-keyservers.net.

If the standard HTTP_PROXY variable is set, and NOKEYPROXY is not, then getkey will pass a --http-proxy parameter to gpg(1).

FILES

The getkey utility’s operation is currently not directly affected by any files.

EXAMPLES

Fetch some keys from a keyserver:

    getkey 2527DF13 16194553

Explicity specify the keyserver to use:

    env KEYSERVERS=subkeys.pgp.net getkey 2527DF13
