Before you install any package from our project, we recommend that you verify it using our PGP key. Follow these two steps if you are not used to using gpg. You first need to import our public key:
ossec-test# wget http://ossec.github.io/files/OSSEC-PGP-KEY.asc ossec-test# gpg –import OSSEC-PGP-KEY.asc
And then verify each file against its signature:
ossec-test# gpg –verify file.sig file
You should get the following result:
gpg: Signature made Tue 19 Jul 2011 03:13:58 PM BRT using RSA key ID A3901351 gpg: Good signature from “Daniel B. Cid ” Primary key fingerprint: 6F11 9E06 487A AF17 C84C E48A 456B 17CF A390 1351
Note that the key expiration date was changed lately. If you get an warning saying “gpg: Note: This key has expired!”, make sure to update the key and run the “import” command again (as specified above).
