problem in understanding gpg

Postby the-bitcoiner » 2020-06-29 04:48

hey all

now there is a project on github that I'm interested in

the project author is including his finger print and the public key in a .asc file

i want to relate things together as I new to the space

how i make use of both, the public key and the finger print, to verify the authenticity of the project

I will be cloning the repository and using the show signature flag of git

please note that i am still new to the space and would like to learn more and understand what i am doing, i am willing to have long detailed answers to dive more in this topic

thank you all in advance
