  2. Download the asc signature file for the relevant distribution
  3. Verify the signatures using the following commands, depending on your use of PGP or GPG:
    $ pgpk -a KEYS
    $ pgpv apache-activemq-<version>-bin.tar.gz.asc


    $ pgp -ka KEYS
    $ pgp apache-activemq-<version>-bin.tar.gz.asc


    $ gpg --import KEYS
    $ gpg --verify apache-activemq-<version>-bin.tar.gz.asc
