Downloading and installing the IRC bouncer ZNC
We'll be using the IRC bouncer package called ZNC. ZNC is a well-maintained and up-to-
date package and like all good open source software, has an IRC channel: #znc on freen-
ode. The packages in the Debian repository are a bit old, so we'll install ZNC from source.
Download the source tarball by issuing the following command:
wget http://znc.in/releases/znc-1.4.tar.gz
We want to develop the good habit of checking signatures on downloaded software. The
1.4 release is signed by Alexey Sokolov, whose GPG fingerprint is: D582 3CAC B477
191C AC00 7555 5AE4 20CC 0209 989E . You can download his public key with
the following command:
gpg -recv-key D5823CACB477191CAC0075555AE420CC0209989E
Next, download the signature file for the release:
wget http://znc.in/releases/znc-1.4.tar.gz.sig
Lastly, verify the signature over the downloaded software:
gpg --verify znc-1.4.tar.gz.sig znc-1.4.tar.gz
You should see something like the following:
gpg: Signature made Thu 08 May 2014 08:21:40 PM UTC using
RSA key ID 0209989E
gpg: Good signature from "Alexey Sokolov
gpg: aka "Alexey Sokolov
gpg: aka "Alexey Sokolov
gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted
gpg: There is no indication that the signature
belongs to the owner.
Primary key fingerprint: D582 3CAC B477 191C AC00 7555 5AE4
