@leonardof, @Hori:

The key with the fingerprint D5E9E43F7DF9EE8C belongs to Richard Levitte (and was used to sign openssl-0.9.8). The key with the fingerprint D9C4D26D0E604491 belongs to Matt Caswell (and was used to sign some other openssl release, hence the confusion, I guess).

Both keys are legit; both Richard and Matt are affiliated with the OpenSSL Management Committee, and their signing keys are listed there (see:

Please remember: do not blindly import a key but do your due diligence before, especially when you are installing encryption packages...

@Hori, is that right? I thought the correct key was that mentioned by @nakano.

The download link for the openssl-0.9.8zh.tar.gz file now returns a 404 error so the package no longer works.

The openssl-0.9.8zh.tar.gz can be found here:

Any chance you can update?

For y'all having issues with the public key, this is what fixed them for me:
gpg --recv-keys --keyserver hkp:// D9C4D26D0E604491

No, I will not include headers. This package is intended for binary packages, that required openssl 0.9.8 libraries. Instead you should update your code to work with openssl 1.0.2, which is maintained upstream and available in [core].

Please include headers: I'd like to use this package to ensure that my *own* code can compile against openssl 0.9.8. To do so I need to compile against the headers from 0.9.8.

As stated in other comments below, to import a key, you should use the --recv-keys argument:

$ gpg --keyserver --recv-keys D5E9E43F7DF9EE8C

new problem

openssl-0.9.8zh.tar.gz ... FAILED (unknown public key D5E9E43F7DF9EE8C)

$ gpg --keyserver --search-keys D5E9E43F7DF9EE8C
gpg: no keyserver known (use option --keyserver)
gpg: keyserver search failed: No keyserver available

I do not include header files by intention. When compiling packages you should link against current stable version, openssl from [core] in this case.

Any reason you want legacy versions instead of currently maintained code?

could you please include files at /usr/include/openssl098? this is necessary to compile other packages like ruby
