GNU privacy guard - network certificate management service

dirmngr is a server for managing and downloading OpenPGP and X.509 certificates, as well as updates and status signals related to those certificates. For OpenPGP, this means pulling from the public HKP/HKPS keyservers, or from LDAP servers. For X.509 this includes Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) and Online Certificate Status Protocol updates (OCSP). It is capable of using tor for network access. . dirmngr is used for network access by gpg, gpgsm, and dirmngr-client, among other tools. Unless this package is installed, the parts of the GnuPG suite that try to interact with the network will fail.
