Download and Verify the Current CERT/CC PGP Key
As a good security practice, be sure to validate PGP keys you receive and do not trust unvalidated keys. In the past, forged CERT PGP keys have been created and uploaded to public keyservers. It is important to validate your copy of the CERT PGP public key to ensure it is legitimate.
Our current PGP key is available below and has the following properties:
