Manages the list of keys used by apt to authenticate packages.
This is done by placing the requested key in a file named $__object_id.gpg in the keydir directory.
This is supported by modern releases of Debian-based distributions.
In order of preference, exactly one of: source, uri or keyid must be specified.
keyring directory, defaults to /etc/apt/trusted.pgp.d, which is enabled system-wide by default.
path to a file containing the GPG key of the repository. Using this is recommended as it ensures that the manifest/type manintainer has validated the key. If -, the GPG key is read from the type's stdin.
'present' or 'absent'. Defaults to 'present'
the URI from which to download the key. It is highly recommended that you only use protocols with TLS like HTTPS. This uses __download but does not use checksums, if you want to ensure that the key doesn't change, you are better off downloading it and using --source.
Deprecated Optional Parameters
the id of the key to download from the keyserver. This is to be used in absence of --source and --uri or together with --use-deprecated-apt-key for key removal. Defaults to $__object_id.
the keyserver from which to fetch the key. Defaults to pool.sks-keyservers.net.
Deprecated Boolean Parameters
apt-key(8) will last be available in Debian 11 and Ubuntu 22.04. You can use this parameter to force usage of apt-key(8). Please only use this parameter to remove keys from the keyring, in order to prepare for removal of apt-key. Adding keys should be done without this parameter. This parameter will be removed when Debian 11 stops being supported.
