Re: signing RPMs without a passphrase? Jeff Johnson Tue Oct 07 18:00:31 2008

Well 2004 was a long time ago. Times have changed too ...

FWIW, rpm-5 uses keyutils to store passphrases.

Which means that its possible to us keyutils to manage
a persistent session pass phrase, loaded before rpm is invoked,
and the passphrase will be passed to gpg for signinging packages.

But you can attempt signing without a pass phrase if you want too.

Subject: signing RPMs without a passphrase?

Is it possible to sign an RPM without being asked the passphrase for
the signing key?  It hampers automated RPM creation to be asked for
the passphrase when building them.  Otherwise, is the only other
option just batch signing the RPMs after they've been created?

thanks,
