DSCVERIFY(1)                General Commands Manual               DSCVERIFY(1)

NAME
       dscverify - verify the validity of a Debian package

SYNOPSIS
       dscverify  [--keyring keyring] ... changes_or_buildinfo_or_dsc_filename
       ...

DESCRIPTION
       dscverify checks that the GPG signatures on the given .changes, .build-
       info  or  .dsc  files  are  good signatures made by keys in the current
       Debian keyrings, found  in  the  debian-keyring  package.   (Additional
       keyrings  can  be  specified  using  the --keyring option any number of
       times.)  It then checks that the other files listed  in  the  .changes,
       .buildinfo or .dsc files have the correct sizes and checksums (MD5 plus
       SHA1 and SHA256 if the latter are present).  The exit status  is  0  if
       there are no problems and non-zero otherwise.

OPTIONS
       --keyring keyring
              Add keyring to the list of keyrings to be used.

       --no-default-keyrings
              Do not use the default set of keyrings.

       --no-conf, --noconf
              Do  not  read any configuration files.  This can only be used as
              the first option given on the command-line.

       --nosigcheck, --no-sig-check, -u
              Skip the signature verification step. That is, only  verify  the
              sizes and checksums of the files listed in the .changes, .build-
              info or .dsc files.

       --verbose
              Do not suppress GPG output.

       --help, -h
              Display a help message and exit successfully.

       --version
              Display version and copyright information and exit successfully.

CONFIGURATION VARIABLES
       The two configuration files /etc/devscripts.conf and ~/.devscripts  are
       sourced by a shell in that order to set configuration variables.  Envi-
       ronment variable settings are ignored for this purpose.  If  the  first
       command  line  option  given is --noconf or --no-conf, then these files
       will not be read.  The currently recognised variable is:

       DSCVERIFY_KEYRINGS
              This is a colon-separated list of extra keyrings to use in addi-
              tion to any specified on the command line.

KEYRING
       Please note that the keyring provided by the debian-keyring package can
       be slightly out of date. The latest version can be obtained with rsync,
       as  documented  in  the  README that comes with debian-keyring.  If you
       sync the keyring to a non-standard location (see below),  you  can  use
       the  possibilities to specify extra keyrings, by either using the above
       mentioned configuration option or the --keyring option.

       Below is an example for an alias:

       alias dscverify='dscverify --keyring ~/.gnupg/pubring.gpg'

STANDARD KEYRING LOCATIONS
       By default dscverify searches for the debian-keyring in  the  following
       locations:

       - ~/.gnupg/trustedkeys.gpg

       - /srv/keyring.debian.org/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg

       - /usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg

       - /usr/share/keyrings/debian-maintainers.gpg
