RPMSIGN(8)                                                    RPMSIGN(8)

NAME         top

       rpmsign - RPM Package Signing

SYNOPSIS         top

   SIGNING PACKAGES:
       rpm --addsign|--resign [rpmsign-options] PACKAGE_FILE ...

       rpm --delsign PACKAGE_FILE ...

       rpm --delfilesign PACKAGE_FILE ...

   rpmsign-options
       [--rpmv3] [--fskpath KEY] [--signfiles]

DESCRIPTION         top

       Both of the --addsign and --resign options generate and insert
       new signatures for each package PACKAGE_FILE given, replacing any
       existing signatures.  There are two options for historical
       reasons, there is no difference in behavior currently.

       To create a signature rpm needs to verify the package's checksum.
       As a result packages with a MD5/SHA1 checksums cannot be signed
       in FIPS mode.

       rpm --delsign PACKAGE_FILE ...

       Delete all signatures from each package PACKAGE_FILE given.

       rpm --delfilesign PACKAGE_FILE ...

       Delete all IMA and fsverity file signatures from each package
       PACKAGE_FILE given.

   SIGN OPTIONS
       --rpmv3
              Force RPM V3 header+payload signature addition.  These are
              expensive and redundant baggage on packages where a
              separate payload digest exists (packages built with rpm >=
              4.14).  Rpm will automatically detect the need for V3
              signatures, but this option can be used to force their
              creation if the packages must be fully signature
              verifiable with rpm < 4.14 or other interoperability
              reasons.

       --fskpath KEY
              Used with --signfiles, use file signing key Key.

       --certpath CERT
              Used with --signverity, use file signing certificate Cert.

       --verityalgo ALG
              Used with --signverity, to specify the signing algorithm.
              sha256 and sha512 are supported, with sha256 being the
              default if this argument is not specified.  This can also
              be specified with the macro %_verity_algorithm

       --signfiles
              Sign package files.  The macro
              %_binary_filedigest_algorithm must be set to a supported
              algorithm before building the package.  The supported
              algorithms are SHA1, SHA256, SHA384, and SHA512, which are
              represented as 2, 8, 9, and 10 respectively.  The file
              signing key (RSA private key) must be set before signing
              the package, it can be configured on the command line with
              --fskpath or the macro %_file_signing_key.

       --signverity
              Sign package files with fsverity signatures.  The file
              signing key (RSA private key) and the signing certificate
              must be set before signing the package.  The key can be
              configured on the command line with --fskpath or the macro
              %_file_signing_key, and the cert can be configured on the
              command line with --certpath or the macro
              %_file_signing_cert.

   USING GPG TO SIGN PACKAGES
       In order to sign packages using GPG, rpm must be configured to
       run GPG and be able to find a key ring with the appropriate keys.
       By default, rpm uses the same conventions as GPG to find key
       rings, namely the $GNUPGHOME environment variable.  If your key
       rings are not located where GPG expects them to be, you will need
       to configure the macro %_gpg_path to be the location of the GPG
       key rings to use.  If you want to be able to sign packages you
       create yourself, you also need to create your own public and
       secret key pair (see the GPG manual).  You will also need to
       configure the rpm macros

       %_gpg_name
              The name of the "user" whose key you wish to use to sign
              your packages.

       For example, to be able to use GPG to sign packages as the user
       "John Doe <jdoe@foo.com>" from the key rings located in
       /etc/rpm/.gpg using the executable /usr/bin/gpg you would include

              %_gpg_path /etc/rpm/.gpg
              %_gpg_name John Doe <jdoe@foo.com>
              %__gpg /usr/bin/gpg

       in a macro configuration file.  Use /etc/rpm/macros for per-
       system configuration and ~/.rpmmacros for per-user configuration.
       Typically it's sufficient to set just %_gpg_name.
