macOS using GPGTools[edit]

GnuPG is a common free software implementation of OpenPGP. Various versions and graphical front-ends are available for macOS. Follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to GPGTools [archive] to download the available suite -- detailed installation and user documentation is also available on the site.
  2. After installing GPGTools, follow the same instructions found on the Verify Virtual Machine Images on the Command Line page.
  3. To open the command line: Navigate to the Applications folderOpen UtilitiesDouble-click on Terminal

Ambox warning pn.svg.png Do not continue if verification fails! This risks using infected or erroneous files! The whole point of verification is to confirm file integrity. This page is strongly related to the pages Placing Trust in Whonix ™ and Verifying Software Signatures.

Troubleshooting[edit]

When a GPG error is encountered, first try a web search for the relevant error. The security stackexchange website [archive] can also help to resolve GPG problems. Describe the problem thoroughly, but be sure it is GPG-related and not specific to Whonix ™.

More help resources are available on the Support page.
