OpenPGP Public Email Keyservers

There are OpenPGP public email key servers which allow one to exchange public keys running using the Internet and UUCP mail systems. Those capable of accessing the WWW might prefer to use the WWW interface available via http://www.pgp.net/pgpnet/www-key.html and managers of sites which may want to make frequent lookups may care to copy the full keyring from the FTP server at ftp://ftp.pgp.net/pub/pgp/keys/

This service exists only to help transfer keys between PGP users. It does NOT attempt to guarantee that a key is a valid key; use the signatures on a key for that kind of security.

Each keyserver processes requests in the form of mail messages.
The commands for the server are entered on the Subject: line.
---------------------------------------------- ======== -----
Note that they should NOT be included in the body of the message.
--------------------- === ---------------------------------------

       To: pgp-public-keys@keys.pgp.net
       From: johndoe@some.site.edu
       Subject: help

Sending your key to ONE server is enough. After it processes your key, it will forward your add request to other servers automagically.

For example, to add your key to the keyserver, or to update your key if it is already there, send a message similar to the following to any server:

       To: pgp-public-keys@keys.pgp.net
       From: johndoe@some.site.edu
       Subject: add

       Version: 2.6

       <blah blah blah>
       -----END PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----

COMPROMISED KEYS: Create a Key Revocation Certificate (read the PGP docs on how to do that) and mail your key to the server once again, with the ADD command.

Valid commands are:

Command                Result
---------------------- -------------------------------------------------
HELP                   Returns this message
HELP language          Localized help text (DE, EN, ES, FI, FR, HR, NO)
ADD                    Add PGP public key from the body of your message
INDEX userid           List all PGP keys containing the words in userid
VERBOSE INDEX userid   Verbose list of all keys containing userid
GET userid             Get the key(s) matching userid
LAST days              Get the keys updated in the last `days' days


Most keyservers have a limit on the number of keys they return in queries, in order not to swamp you with too many keys in case you made a typo (the full database at the keyservers exceeds 2GB).

If you *REALLY* need the whole index file or key ring, *PLEASE* ftp it from a key server such as "ftp://ftp.pgp.net/pub/pgp/keys/"; or one of the national servers.

NOTE: PGP is extremely slow when operating on large keyrings. Adding
     the full ring of the keyserver to your own ring will take several
     *MONTHS* to complete.


Users should normally use the email address "pgp-public-keys@keys.pgp.net" or your national servers using one of:


for the email interface, "ftp://ftp.pgp.net/pub/pgp/"; for FTP, and "http://www.pgp.net/pgpnet/"; for WWW access.

Users are recommended to use the "*.pgp.net" addresses above as these are stable and reliable.
