The Devuan keyring contains the public key that Devuan's package building system uses for signing packages. It is an OpenPGP keyring. By installing the keyring into the `apt` trust database, `apt` will able to verify Devuan packages automatically. In normal use, `apt` will refuse to install any package that cannot be verified.
It is easy to install the devuan-keyring package with this command:
# apt-get install devuan-keyring
If you are migrating to Devuan you may need to install the keyring package manually first. Download it from one of our mirrors and install with
dpkg -i devuan-keyring_2017.10.03_all.deb (as root).
When installing this package you may need to confirm this installation manually.
See `man apt-get` for further details.
