Name

dotnet nuget verify - Verifies a signed NuGet package.

Synopsis

dotnet nuget verify [<package-path(s)>]
    [--all]
    [--certificate-fingerprint <FINGERPRINT>]
    [-v|--verbosity <LEVEL>]
    [--configfile <FILE>]

dotnet nuget verify -h|--help

Description

The dotnet nuget verify command verifies a signed NuGet package.

Note

This command requires a certificate root store that is valid for both code signing and timestamping. See NuGet signed package verification for details.

Arguments

  • package-path(s)

    Specifies the file path to the package(s) to be verified. Multiple position arguments can be passed in to verify multiple packages.

Options

  • --all

    Specifies that all verifications possible should be performed on the package(s). By default, only signatures are verified.

Note

This command currently supports only signature verification.

  • --certificate-fingerprint <FINGERPRINT>

    Verify that the signer certificate matches with one of the specified SHA256 fingerprints. This option can be supplied multiple times to provide multiple fingerprints.

  • -v|--verbosity <LEVEL>

    Sets the verbosity level of the command. Allowed values are q[uiet], m[inimal], n[ormal], d[etailed], and diag[nostic]. The default is minimal. For more information, see LoggerVerbosity.

    The following table shows what is displayed for each verbosity level.

Examples

  • Verify foo.nupkg:

    dotnet nuget verify foo.nupkg
    
  • Verify multiple NuGet packages - foo.nupkg and all .nupkg files in the directory specified:

    dotnet nuget verify foo.nupkg c:\mydir\*.nupkg
    
  • Verify foo.nupkg signature matches with the specified certificate fingerprint:

    dotnet nuget verify foo.nupkg --certificate-fingerprint CE40881FF5F0AD3E58965DA20A9F571EF1651A56933748E1BF1C99E537C4E039
    
  • Verify foo.nupkg signature matches with one of the specified certificate fingerprints:

    dotnet nuget verify foo.nupkg --certificate-fingerprint CE40881FF5F0AD3E58965DA20A9F571EF1651A56933748E1BF1C99E537C4E039 --certificate-fingerprint EC10992GG5F0AD3E58965DA20A9F571EF1651A56933748E1BF1C99E537C4E027
    
  • Verify the signature of foo.nupkg by using settings (packagesources and trustedSigners) only from the specified nuget.config file:

    dotnet nuget verify foo.nupkg --configfile ..\Settings\nuget.config
