There are different validation models associated with different key types.
Fingerprints are typically used for initial SSH connection verification to hosts.
SSL/TLS certs depend on the CA cert chain.
GPG keys depend on the trustdb; for GPG armoured keys, download then
	gpg/gpg2 --import pubring.asc
	gpg/gpg2 --check-sigs <the displayed keyid>.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
