Downloading and Installing

The Monkeysphere is comprised of a couple of different packages:

  • monkeysphere - Monkeysphere for SSH authentication
  • msva-perl - Cryptographic identity validation agent
  • xul-ext-monkeysphere - Iceweasel/Firefox extension for using Monkeysphere on the web

If you just want to use the Monkeysphere for OpenSSH, you can simply obtain the monkeysphere SSH package, and be on your way.

If you wish to use the Monkeysphere for website validation you will need the Firefox/Iceweasel add-on ("xul-ext") and the validation agent ("msva").

Once you've installed the packages, don't forget to check out the documentation page!

Also check out the monkeysign package, useful to make key signing easier.

Pre-built packages

You can get pre-built packages for your favorite operating system below.

Don't see your favorite operating system? Then we need your help to provide packages! Contact us if you can help!

If your distribution of choice doesn't already include the Firefox add-on you can install the Monkeysphere Firefox extension manually

Once you have installed the add-on, you will need to restart your browser.
