       srptool - GnuTLS SRP tool


       srptool [-flags] [-flag [value]] [--option-name[[=| ]value]]

       All arguments must be options.


       Simple  program  that  emulates  the programs in the Stanford SRP (Secure Remote Password)
       libraries using GnuTLS.  It is intended for use in  places  where  you  don't  expect  SRP
       authentication to be the used for system users.

       In   brief,   to  use  SRP  you need to create two files. These are the password file that
       holds the users and the verifiers associated with  them  and  the  configuration  file  to
       hold the group parameters (called tpasswd.conf).


       -d number, --debug=number
              Enable  debugging.  This option takes an integer number as its argument.  The value
              of number is constrained to being:
                  in the range  0 through 9999

              Specifies the debug level.

       -i number, --index=number
              specify the index of the group parameters in tpasswd.conf to use.  This option
              takes an integer number as its argument.  The default number for this option is:

       -u string, --username=string
              specify a username.

       -p string, --passwd=string
              specify a password file.

       -s number, --salt=number
              specify salt size.  This option takes an integer number as its argument.

              just verify the password..

              Verifies the password provided against the password file.

       -v string, --passwd-conf=string
              specify a password conf file..

              Specify a filename or a PKCS #11 URL to read the CAs from.

              Generate a password configuration file..

              This generates a password configuration file (tpasswd.conf) containing the required
              for TLS parameters.

       -h, --help
              Display usage information and exit.

       -!, --more-help
              Pass the extended usage information through a pager.

       -v [{v|c|n --version [{v|c|n}]}]
              Output version of program and exit.  The default mode is `v', a simple version.
              The `c' mode will print copyright information and `n' will print the full copyright


       To create tpasswd.conf which holds the g and n values for SRP protocol (generator and a
       large prime), run:
           $ srptool --create-conf /etc/tpasswd.conf

       This command will create /etc/tpasswd and will add user 'test' (you will also be prompted
       for a password). Verifiers are stored by default in the way libsrp expects.
           $ srptool --passwd /etc/tpasswd --passwd-conf /etc/tpasswd.conf -u test

       This command will check against a password. If the password matches the one in
       /etc/tpasswd you will get an ok.
           $ srptool --passwd /etc/tpasswd --passwd-conf /etc/tpasswd.conf --verify -u test


       One of the following exit values will be returned:

       0  (EXIT_SUCCESS)
              Successful program execution.

       1  (EXIT_FAILURE)
              The operation failed or the command syntax was not valid.

       70  (EX_SOFTWARE)
              libopts had an internal operational error.  Please report it to autogen-
      Thank you.
