<h3>Authenticate the signing key through the OpenPGP Web of Trust</h3>

<p>Authenticating our signing key through the OpenPGP Web of Trust is
the only way that you can be protected in case our website is
compromised or if you are a victim of a [[man-in-the-middle attack|doc/about/warning#man-in-the-middle]].
However, it is complicated to do and it might not be
possible for everyone because it relies on trust relationships between
individuals.</p>

[[!toggle id="web-of-trust" text="Read more about authenticating the Tails signing key through the OpenPGP Web of Trust."]]

[[!toggleable id="web-of-trust" text="""
<span class="hide">[[!toggle id="web-of-trust" text=""]]</span>

<p>The verification techniques that we present (browser extension,
BitTorrent, or OpenPGP verification) all rely on some
information being securely downloaded using HTTPS from our website:</p>

<ul>
  <li>The <em>checksum</em> for the Firefox extension</li>
  <li>The <em>Torrent file</em> for BitTorrent</li>
  <li>The <em>Tails signing key</em> for OpenPGP verification</li>
</ul>

<p>It is possible that you could download malicious information if our
website is compromised or if you are a victim of a man-in-the-middle
attack.</p>

<p>OpenPGP verification is the only technique that protects you if
our website is compromised or if you are a victim of a man-in-the-middle
attack. But, for that you need to authenticate the Tails signing key
through the OpenPGP Web of Trust.</p>

<div class="note">

<p>If you are verifying an image from inside Tails, for
example, to do a manual upgrade, then you already have the Tails signing key.
You can trust this signing key as much as you already trust your
Tails installation since this signing key is included in your Tails
installation.</p>

</div>

<p>One of the inherent problems of standard HTTPS is that the trust put
in a website is defined by certificate authorities: a hierarchical and closed
set of companies and governmental institutions approved by your web browser vendor.
This model of trust has long been criticized and proved several times to be
vulnerable to attacks [[as explained on our warning page|doc/about/warning#man-in-the-middle]].</p>

<p>We believe that, instead, users should be given the final say when trusting a
website, and that designation of trust should be done on the basis of human
interactions.</p>

<p>The OpenPGP [[!wikipedia Web_of_Trust]] is a
decentralized trust model based on OpenPGP keys that can help with solving
this problem. Let's see this with an example:</p>

<ol>
  <li>
   <em>You are friends with Alice and you really trust her way of making sure
   that OpenPGP keys actually belong to their owners.</em>
  </li>

  <li>
   <em>Alice met Bob, a Tails developer, in a conference and certified
   Bob's key as actually belonging to Bob.</em>
  </li>

  <li>
    <em>Bob is a Tails developer who directly owns the Tails signing key. So,
    Bob has certified the Tails signing key as actually belonging to Tails.</em>
  </li>
</ol>

<p>In this scenario, you found, through Alice and Bob, a path to trust the Tails signing key
without the need to rely on certificate authorities.</p>

<div class="tip">

<p>If you are on Debian, Ubuntu, or Linux Mint, you can install the
<code>debian-keyring</code> package which contains the OpenPGP keys of
all Debian developers. Some Debian developers have certified the Tails
signing key and you can use these certifications to build a trust path.
This technique is explained in detail in our instructions on
[[installing Tails from Debian, Ubuntu, or Linux Mint using the command
line|install/expert/usb]].</p>

</div>

<p>Relying on the Web of Trust requires both caution and intelligent supervision
by the users. The technical details are outside of the scope of this document.</p>

<p>Since the Web of Trust is based on actual human relationships and
real-life interactions, it is best to get in touch with people
knowledgeable about OpenPGP and build trust relationships in order to
find your own trust path to the Tails signing key.</p>

<p>For example, you can start by contacting a local [[!wikipedia Linux_User_Group]],
[[an organization offering Tails training|support/learn]], or other Tails
enthusiasts near you and exchange about their OpenPGP practices.</p>

<div class="tip">

<p>After you build a trust path, you can certify the Tails signing key by
signing it with your own key to get rid of some warnings during the
verification process.</p>
