Google’s Linux software packages will automatically configure the repository settings necessary to keep your Google Linux applications up-to-date. Please download and install packages from the appropriate product pages.
Google’s Linux packages are signed with a GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) key. Google’s packages will automatically configure your package manager to verify product updates with the public signing key, but you may also install it separately if, for instance, you want to verify the integrity of an initial package download. Follow the instructions below to manually configure your package manager to use the key.

On an APT-based system (Debian, Ubuntu, etc.), download the key and then use
to install it.
wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -
Recent versions of
apt-get will automatically attempt to verify packages on
download. If an appropriate key is not found or if the package is corrupted, you will get a
message like the following:
WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
On an RPM-based system (Fedora, SUSE, Mandriva, RHEL, etc.), download the key and then use
rpm to install it.
sudo rpm --import linux_signing_key.pub
You can verify the key installation by running:
rpm -qi gpg-pubkey-7fac5991-*
To manually verify an RPM package, you can run the command:
rpm --checksig -v packagename.rpm
