NAME

       dropbearconvert - convert between Dropbear and OpenSSH private key formats

SYNOPSIS

       dropbearconvert input_type output_type input_file output_file

DESCRIPTION

       Dropbear   and   OpenSSH   SSH   implementations   have  different  private  key  formats.
       dropbearconvert can convert between the two.

       Dropbear uses the same SSH public key format as  OpenSSH,  it  can  be  extracted  from  a
       private key by using dropbearkey -y

       Encrypted private keys are not supported, use ssh-keygen(1) to decrypt them first.

ARGUMENTS

       input_type
              Either dropbear or openssh

       output_type
              Either dropbear or openssh

       input_file
              An existing Dropbear or OpenSSH private key file

       output_file
              The  path  to  write  the  converted  private  key  file. For client authentication
              ~/.ssh/id_dropbear is loaded by default

EXAMPLE

        # dropbearconvert openssh dropbear ~/.ssh/id_rsa ~/.ssh/id_dropbear
