Hi, Bernd.

(Disclaimer: I’m one of the hockeypuck contributors)

If you have docker-compose installed, it’s *very* easy to spin up a test instance of hockeypuck, see the README at https://github.com/hockeypuck/hockeypuck

You will need a non-empty keydump to start with, but you can export a single key to a file with the suffix “.gpg” and it should suffice.

I’m pretty sure you can self-host hagrid, although I haven’t tested it.

SKS-keyserver is very similar to hockeypuck (hockeypuck was first developed as an SKS-keyserver replacement). It does have the ability for a quick-build that serves static files directly without ingesting them into a database in advance, however you will still probably have to build the ptree (at least in its default configuration). It also has an unofficial docker image at https://registry.hub.docker.com/r/zhusj/sks <https://registry.hub.docker.com/r/zhusj/sks#!>

https://github.com/PennockTech/openpgpkey-control comes to mind.
