To install we need to run the following command:
sudo apt-get install -y sks
Now we build the key database:
sudo sks build
And change the permissions for the sks user:
sudo chown -R debian-sks:debian-sks /var/lib/sks/DB
Next we need to make sks start from init, open up /etc/default/sks in your favourite editor and *initstart* to look like below:
Now we can start the service with:
sudo /etc/init.d/sks start
Your keyserver will now be up and running on port 11371.
We’ll need to create a web folder within sks with the following command:
sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/sks/www/
Change it’s permissions so the sks user can access it.
sudo chown -R debian-sks:debian-sks /var/lib/sks/www
And finally we need create a single HTML file for the interface, I have provided that too.
sudo wget /files/sks-index.html -O /var/lib/sks/www/index.html
