Is the whonix-libvirt package changes part of 15.0.3.3-stable then?

No.

Merged in master but not included in any tag.

Could you review https://www.whonix.org/w/index.php?title=KVM&oldid=49231&diff=cur please?

Could you please update https://www.whonix.org/wiki/KVM#Verify_the_Whonix_.E2.84.A2_Images?

This

gpg --keyid-format long --import --import-options show-only --with-fingerprint hulahoop.asc

That command would need me to refer to a download link for my key on the Whonix website. I just tested the current keyserver command without problems though, so why is it needed (besides unifying instructions)?

From my limited experience there can be issues with downloading keys from one day to the next regardless of which keyserver is used. Users should have no issues with downloading hulahoop.asc . If they do, it would also mean they would not be able to download the ova images either . I think the push is to try to find a more reliable and just as secure way to verify whonix images then what is currently available.

Ticket created just now.

stop using gpg keyservers / provide OpenPGP keys for download as files from torproject.org

I see, OK let me know if/where my key is on the site and I’ll change things. In the long term, we can’t afford to ignore the key management infrastrucutre completely becuase that just puts too much trust and availability in one place (our site).

For Whonix software downloads? I don’t see any advantage of using keyservers even if they are functional. Users get documentation, software downloads, signatures from whonix.org. So can as well add keys there for completion. Doesn’t improve trust or availability by using keyservers for OpenPGP keys. Well, OpenPGP keys can still be additionally uploaded to keyservers but that’s just a bonus.

For the more general discussion besides Whonix software downloads, see:

From what is can see this is the only spot. Although it has both hulahoop.asc and Cli download instructions.

Thanks. Just discovered the wiki blocks .asc uploads.
@Patrick can you please delete my HulaHoop porfile page on the wiki?

EDIT:
KVM instructions updated.

Can’t see. Link?

and import:

gpg --keyid-format long --import --import-options show-only --with-fingerprint hulahoop.asc

That is wrong. That ocmmand does not import. It shows the fingerprint. Import is a separate step after checking the key fingerprint. See https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Whonix_Signing_Key#Download_the_Key

I’m not sure that page exist. If I search for https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Captain_Kangaroo I get the same result.

You can search for this page title in other pages, or search the related logs, but you do not have permission to create this page.

Could you please document how to use SysRq with KVM?

Attempting build but I’m seeing a nasty error. Does this have anything to do wih recent fixes to the script for kicksecure?
