Getting the Red Hat public key

Strangely enough, the Red Hat public key is not installed when you install Red Hat Linux 8.0. If you need the key, the Red Hat public key is available on the root directory of all Red Hat Linux CD-ROMs, as shown in the following listing:
$ ls /mnt/cdrom/
EULA GPL README RedHat/ RPM-GPG-KEY SRPMS/ TRANS.TBL
Simply copy the RPM-GPG-KEY file to get the public key. Then use the rpm --import command with this key file.
Note
You can also download this key file from the Red Hat FTP site, at ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/8.0/en/os/i386/.
