From where I can download the .asc public key for Tor Browser? I don't want to add the key using gpg --auto-key-locate nodefault,wkd --locate-keys [email protected] because I read a note on Github and that advises high-risk users to stop using the keyserver network immediately.

Where I can find .asc public key ?

I don't know who the person is that wrote that, but the official documentation searches the keyserver to get it. See here: https://support.torproject.org/tbb/how-to-verify-signature/

On Linux you can run the GPG command through torsocks for a greater level of anonymity.


The WKD URL for the validation key for TBB is


However, using the command given in the official instructions doesn't contact the public keyserver network, so you wouldn't be at risk of that attack anyway, even if you were a high risk user.
