Mock » GPG keys and SSL certificates

A 'simple' chroot build environment manager for building RPMs.

GPG Keys

When you want to verify GPG keys during installation in build root you can use something like in the config:

config_opts['dnf.conf'] = """
... SNIP
name=CentOS Stream $releasever - AppStream
... SNIP

The path in gpgkey refers to the path in a buildchroot. How do you get your GPG key to buildchroot? There are several ways:


The package distribution-gpg-key is a requirement of Mock and is installed into buildchroot. The easiest way is to add your package to distribution-gpg-key project and then your key will be automatically present in both of host and buildroot.

This is the preferred way for any new config added to mock-core-configs.

Local key

Any file named RPM-GPG-KEY-* in the /etc/pki/mock/ on the host is copied to buildchroot to the same path.

You can use it for your personal GPG keys.

SSL certificates

Mock copy whole /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted directory from the host to chroot. So the chroot environment should recognize all SSL certificates your host knows. If you need to add some specific certificate, you can add this part in your config:

# Copy host's SSL certificate bundle ('/etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt') into
# specified location inside chroot.  This usually isn't needed because we copy
# the whole /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted directory recursively by default, and
# Fedora or EL systems work with that.  But some destination chroots can have
# different configuration, and copying the bundle helps.
#config_opts['ssl_ca_bundle_path'] = None
