1.2.2 Ensure GPG keys are configured

Information

Most packages managers implement GPG key signing to verify package integrity during installation.

Rationale:

It is important to ensure that updates are obtained from a valid source to protect against spoofing that could lead to the inadvertent installation of malware on the system.

NOTE: Nessus has provided the target output to assist in reviewing the benchmark to ensure target compliance.
