GPG Signatures

Funtoo Linux stage tarballs are signed using GPG by the build server they are built on. Each official Funtoo Linux build server has its own individual primary key and signing subkey. The following keys are used to create detached binary signatures ending in .gpg of each stage tarball. All keys are 4096 bit RSA with no expiry.

In turn, these public keys are signed by the Funtoo Linux master signing key:

To verify the integrity of stage3 tarballs using GPG, first download your preferred stage3 taball, and the matching file with the additional .gpg extension in the same directory. Next, we will receive the public master key from a public keyserver (specifying the last 8 digits of the BDFL fingerprint,) and assign ultimate trust to it:

# gpg --recv-key E986E8EE
# gpg --edit-key E986E8EE
gpg> trust
Your decision? 5
Do you really want to set this key to ultimate trust? (y/N) y
gpg> quit

Each build server key has been signed by the BDFL key, so by trusting the BDFL key ultimately, you will automatically fully trust the build server keys.

Then, you will want to use the gpg --recv-key command, now specifying the the last 8 digits of the build server's primary key fingerprint listed above for each build server for which you want to verify signatures. The following command will grab public keys for all of the Funtoo Linux build servers listed above:

# gpg --recv-key 11FD00FD 683A2F8A BEA87CD2 EEE54A43 62DD 6D47
Then, you can use the gpg --verify command to verify the stage3's GPG signature:

# gpg --verify stage3-latest.tar.xz.gpg stage3-latest.tar.xz
You should see output similar to this, which will specify the last 8 digits of the signing GPG fingerprint:
