Rotating RPM keys

For security reasons, the keys used to sign Centreon RPMs have to be rotated occasionally.

Fresh installation​

If you did a fresh installation after the new RPM key was published, there are no additional actions to do besides accepting the new rpm key.

Retrieving key from https://yum-gpg.centreon.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-CES
Importing GPG key 0x3FC49C1B:
Userid : "Centreon Enterprise Server Official Signing Key <admin@centreon.com>"
Fingerprint: 1035 e42c b766 7952 ee42 dee9 a97d aa5a 3fc4 9c1b
From : https://yum-gpg.centreon.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-CES
Is this ok [y/N]:

However, you can check that you have the correct key.

Existing installation​

If you did a fresh installation of a Centreon platform before the new RPM key was published, the existing key has to be replaced with the new one.

  1. Download the following script:

    curl -JO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/centreon/centreon/master/centreon/check-centreon-gpg-key.sh
  2. Make the script executable:

    chmod u+x check-centreon-gpg-key.sh
  3. Run the script:

    sh check-centreon-gpg-key.sh

    The script will:

    • check the RPM key in the RPM database and ask you to remove it
    • check the key file in the /etc/pki/rpm-gpg directory
    • ask you to fetch and import the new RPM key into the RPM database
    • ask you to update the release RPM package (this will remove the revoked key from /etc/pki/rpm-gpg)
    • ask you to check the signature of the RPM packages.

Checks​

You can then check that the new key has been correctly imported. For the new key published on October 14, 2021:

  • After installation, check if the new key has been correctly imported into the RPM database:

    rpm -qi gpg-pubkey-3fc49c1b-6166eb52

    The results should be as follows:
