    Stable jail for poudriere-devel:

    RSA signing key for cryptographic verification of the repository. Optional.

    This information is largely from Glen Barber’s page

    Add this line to /usr/local/etc/poudriere.conf:

    On any system that uses the packages you should copy the /usr/local/etc/ssl/certs/pkg.cert file over and put it in the same place (DO NOT COPY THE pkg.key file) and add these lines to /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/myrepo.conf:

    Now the downloaded packages are verified that they have the correct cryptographic signatures before installation.
