Manual Signature Verification

In case you want to manually verify the validity of a .nasl file, you can either run GnuPG:

$ gpg --homedir=/etc/openvas/gnupg gpg --verify script.nasl.asc script.nasl

Or you can use the standalone nasl interpreter:

$ openvas-nasl -p script.nasl

The -p option means that the script is only parsed and not executed.

To debug the signature verification done by the nasl interpreter, use the -T option to enable the trace mode. The signature verification will leave more detailed information about the verification and the signatures found in the trace file.
