Re: [opensuse-security] RPM signature verification

Hi there,

does RPM need to run gpg to verify signatures or is this hardcoded
directly into RPM?

rpm has GPG signature verification built-in.

What is the default behaviour of rpm if signature verification fails for
whatever reason, does rpm abort installation of the package?


By default libzypp (and so zypper/yast2) check the YUM repository for
signatures and
follows the SHA256 checksums for the content including the RPMs.

The RPMs checksum is not checked.

New libzypp versions can however check RPM signatures instead of repository
