- Create ASCII art of an OpenPGP key.
creates an ASCII art representation of public OpenPGP keys. The art is animplementation of the Drunken Bishop by Dirk Loss. Documentation about thealgorithm can be found in /usr/share/doc/signing-party/keyart/, or asappropriate for your distribution.
keyartsupports printing the ASCII art in both plain text (default) and ANSIcolor. ANSI color uses a "heat map", where cold (blue) represents squares inthe room the drunk bishop has rarely visited, and hot (red) represents squaresin the room the drunk bishop has frequently visited. There is a 1:1 ratio ofcolor to printed character.
The KEYIDs are key identifiers (fingerprint, keyid, user ID, etc.see gpg(1) for details). If no KEYID is given, keyartcreates an ASCII art representation for all keys found.
- -c | --color
- Print the ASCII art using ANSI color to the terminal.
- -l | --longid
- Print the 16-character long ID of a on OpenPGP key in the footer badge. Defaultis to print the 8-character short ID. Silently ignored if "-f |--fingerprint HEX" is passed.
- -f | --fingerprint HEX
- Any arbitrary hexadecimal string of any length. Could be an MD5, SHA1, SHA2, orSHA3 hexadecimal checksum. Useful for comparing and analyzing potentialcollisions with existing keys. This option can be repeated multiple times.
- -k | --keyring KEYRING
- An OpenPGP public key file or keyring, from which the KEYIDs are tobe found. If this option is not present, the KEYIDs are found fromGnuPG's default keyring (usually ~/.gnupg/pubring.gpg); if it isrepeated multiple times, the provided KEYRINGs are used assuccessive sources.
- -h | --help
- Print the help message and quit.
- Set the default home directory.
- Set the gpg binary. Default: "gpg".
- Set the default working directory for gpg. Default: "~/.gnupg".
- keyart was executed successfully.
- gpg(1) or gpg2(1) are not installed.
- The supplied hexadecimal string is not a multiple of 8 bytes.
