Hagrid is a verifying OpenPGP key server.

Quick Start

Building Hagrid requires a working nightly Rust toolchain. The easiest way to get the toolchain is to download rustup.

Additionally, install external dependencies are required. Get them (on Debian or Ubuntu) with

sudo apt install gnutls-bin nettle-dev gcc llvm-dev libclang-dev build-essential pkg-config gettext

After rustup and all other dependencies are installed, get the nightly compiler and tools, copy the config file, and simply compile and run:

cd hagrid
rustup override set nightly
cp Rocket.toml.dist Rocket.toml
cargo run

This will spawn a web server listening on port 8080.

For deployment, a release build should be used (cargo build --release). This will be statically built, and can be copied anywhere. You will also need to adjust Rocket.toml accordingly. Hagrid uses sendmail for mailing, so you also need a working local mailer setup.

Reverse Proxy

Hagrid is designed to defer lookups to reverse proxy server like Nginx and Apache. Lookups via /vks/v1/by-finingerprint, /vks/v1/by-keyid, and /vks/v1/by-email can be handled by a robust and performant HTTP server. A sample configuration for nginx is part of the repository (nginx.conf, hagrid-routes.conf).
