The XFree86 Project uses the security at XFree86.org public key so that all parties using XFree86 software and this site know that it is authentic. Our public key also tells you that the information received from this site was not altered either deliberately or inadvertently and that our identity is inextricably bound to the information provided.
We sign only the tagged release software available from our FTP site. We also use our public key for other security sensitive matters. We do not sign our experimental snapshots.
The security at XFree86.org GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) public key is available from the following sites:
We strongly recommend that you check the fingerprint of our key against a number of different sources after downloading it but before trusting it. Do not rely on this page solely as it could have been compromised.
If you should find that at any of these sites, our signature
differs from the one provided at this website or in any of the
packages that we have signed and uploaded on our FTP site or
our FTP mirrors, report this immediately
security at Xfree86.org. Do not forget to include a
complete URL to the file with a bad signature in your report.
A good reference for further information on public key validation, authentication and other trust-reated issues is the GPG Handbook.
The email@example.com public key fingerprint is:
A0EA FDB7 1D11 CE9D 072A 2CB5 6458 ACD2 6955 B539
First you need to import the firstname.lastname@example.org public key to your key ring with a command like:
gpg --import email@example.com
To verify the signature for a foo.tgz file distribution, run the command
gpg --verify foo.tgz.asc foo.tgz
Report any bad signatures of packages found on our FTP site or its mirrors to security@XFree86.org. Do not forget to include a complete URL to the file with a bad signature in your report.
