RVM 1.26.0 signs and verifies all releases and the rvm-installer script. In most cases it's all automated and the installer will check if the downloaded releases signature matches the public key imported by user. But there is the first step that would need to be done manually - verifying the rvm-installer was signed by the given key:

# Install mpapis public key (might need `gpg2` and or `sudo`)
gpg --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 409B6B1796C275462A1703113804BB82D39DC0E3

# Download the installer
\curl -O
\curl -O

# Verify the installer signature (might need `gpg2`), and if it validates...
gpg --verify rvm-installer.asc &&

# Run the installer
bash rvm-installer stable

In rare cases the gpg --keyserver is failing, use this instead:

curl -sSL | gpg --import -

Identity of mpapis can be confirmed with mpapis public key on
