SKS Keyserver is deprecated - is there a suggested alternative?

I used and was wondering if there was a specific one suggested by you guys here.

" This service is deprecated. This means it is no longer maintained, and new HKPS certificates will not be issued. Service reliability should not be expected.

Update 2021-06-21: Due to even more GDPR takedown requests, the DNS records for the pool will no longer be provided at all."

So we’ve moved over to and that will be in next week’s LXC release.

Until then, you can directly patch the lxc-download script in /usr/share/lxc/templates/ or set DOWNLOAD_KEYSERVER in your environment to whatever server you’d like to use.
