How to verify?

You should follow these instructions in order to verify the above statement:

  1. Download and import our PGP/GPG key from https://nicevps.net/index/pgp or run command:
    gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-key 0x173CECFE9F89D843C47462474E06EBA9C2F37F75
  2. Download the signed canary statement (save it as canary.txt)
  3. Then run this command in a terminal or verify from a GUI:
    gpg --keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve --verify canary.txt
  4. You should get a positive output message like "Good signature from "NiceVPS <our_email>" and verify that the key id and fingerprint matches:
    Fingerprint: 173CECFE9F89D843C47462474E06EBA9C2F37F75
    Key-ID: C2F37F75

If this text has been altered, then the signature will fail to verify and the statement should not be trusted (but it is not an ultimate proof).

Note that if the statement is outdated, verification failed or simply does not appear you should proceed with caution as our service may not be able to protect you as before.
