       gnunet-identity - create, delete or list egos


       gnunet-identity [options]


       gnunet-identity  is  a  tool  for  managing  egos.   An ego is the persona that controls a
       namespace.  It is identical to a public-private ECC key pair.

       gnunet-identity can be used to list all of the egos that were created locally,  to  create
       new  egos,  and to delete existing egos (the namespace will continue to exist, but it will
       be impossible to add additional data to it).

       Creating a new ego requires using the -C option together with an identifier (name) that is
       to  be  used  for the new ego.  This identifier is only used locally for this peer and not
       shared with other peers.

       -C NAME, --create=NAME
              Creates a new ego with the given NAME.

       -D NAME, --delete=NAME
              Delete the ego with the given NAME.

       -e NAME, --ego=NAME
              Perform "set" operation with the respective ego.  Needs to be  used  together  with
              option -s.

       -h, --help
              Print help page.

       -d, --display
              display all ouf our egos

       -m, --monitor
              run  in monitor mode, listing all ouf our egos until CTRL-C is pressed. Each ego is
              listed together with a unique pointer value; if  egos  are  renamed,  that  pointer
              value  remains  the same; if egos are deleted, they are listed one more time with a
              name of "<null>".

       -s SUBSYSTEM, --set=SUBSYSTEM
              Perform "set" operation for the specified SUBSYSTEM with the respective ego.  Needs
              to  be  used together with option -e.  After this, the given SUBSYSTEM will use the
              ego with the specified NAME.  This will fail if NAME does not yet exist.
