Usually, the GPG keys needed to verify package signatures are stored in
the /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/ directory, where package tools like Yum find them
automatically and import them after asking you for confirmation.

The keys belong into packages, which provide repository definitions, such
as the "fedora-release" package and similar packages for 3rd party
repositories. You can verify such packages with RPM to find any keys
you may have erased by accident. "rpm -V fedora-release" for example.
Additionally, you can list imported keys with "rpm -q gpg-pubkey" as
you may have imported some keys manually.
