Content Credentials can be associated with Katello Products and Repositories. Two types of Content Credentials are supported, each having a distinct purpose:
GPG Keys are used by Content Hosts in order to verify the signature of packages that have been retrieved from a Repository and ensure they haven’t been corrupted. For more information on GPG Keys see The GNU Privacy Guard.
