Description

Retrieves and publishes certificates over the network.

OpenPGP certificates can be discovered and updated from, and published on services accessible over the network.  This is a collection of commands to interact with these services.

Subcommands

sq network fetch

Retrieves certificates using all supported network services.

By default, any returned certificates are stored in the local certificate store.  This can be overridden by using `--output` option.

When a certificate is retrieved from a verifying key server (currently, this is limited to a list of known servers: `hkps://keys.openpgp.org`, `hkps://keys.mailvelope.com`, and `hkps://mail-api.proton.me`), and imported into the local certificate store, the User IDs are also certificated with a local server-specific key.  That proxy certificate is in turn certified as a minimally trusted CA (trust amount: 1 of 120) by the local trust root.  How much a proxy key server CA is trusted can be tuned using `sq pki link add` or `sq pki link retract` in the usual way.

sq network keyserver

Retrieves and publishes certificates via key servers.

The OpenPGP HTTP Keyserver Protocol (HKP) is a method for publishing and retrieving certificates from key servers.

sq network wkd

Retrieves and publishes certificates via Web Key Directories.

The Web Key Directory (WKD) is a method for publishing and retrieving certificates from web servers.

sq network dane

Retrieves and publishes certificates via DANE.

DNS-Based Authentication of Named Entities (DANE) is a method for publishing and retrieving certificates in DNS as specified in RFC 7929.
