Managing Content Hosts using GPG Keys

GPG Keys provide a way to verify the integrity of packages found within a Repository and/or Product. Once one or more GPG Keys have been created, they can be associated with a Product or Repository during creation or by editing an existing Product or Repository.

For more information on GPG Keys see The GNU Privacy Guard.
