NAME

       rsa-keygen - generate an RSA public/private key pair for PKCIPE

SYNOPSIS

       rsa-keygen [ -p ] NAME [ bits ]

DESCRIPTION

       NAME is the file name and the identity name.

       rsa-keygen  writes  the  private  key  into  the file NAME.priv and the
       corresponding public key into NAME. It should be invoked on each  host,
       the  private  key  should  be  moved to /etc/cipe/identity.priv and the
       public key should be copied to the other  machine(s).  The  public  key
       files  are text files, it is possible (and necessary) to append options
       in the usual format to these files after the key.

       The bits value defaults to 1024. Use -p to  set  a  passphrase  on  the
       private key.
