openpgpkey - Create and verify RFC-TBD OPENPGPKEY DNS records
openpgpkey [--fetch | --verify] [--insecure] [--resolv.conf /PATH/TO/RESOLV.CONF] user [at] domain
openpgpkey generates RFC-TBD OPENPGPKEY DNS records. To generate these records for older nameserver implementations that do not yet support the OPENPGPKEY record, specify --output generic to output the openpgpkey data in Generic Record (RFC-3597) format. Records are generated by taking all keys with the specified email address associated with it from the user's local GnuPG keychain.
- Fetch an OPENPGPKEY public key record from DNS
- Create an OPENPGPKEY DNS record
- Verify a public key from the local GPG keyring with the OPENPGPKEY DNS record
- Specify a custom resolv.conf file (default: /etc/resolv.conf)
--output rfc | generic | both
- Output format of OPENPGPKEY record. "OPENPGPKEY" for rfc, "TYPE61" for generic (default: generic)
