NAME

       pkcs11-keygen - generate keys on a PKCS#11 device

SYNOPSIS

       pkcs11-keygen {-a algorithm} [-b keysize] [-e] [-i id] [-m module] [-P] [-p PIN] [-q] [-S]
                     [-s slot] {label}

DESCRIPTION

       pkcs11-keygen causes a PKCS#11 device to generate a new key pair with the given label
       (which must be unique) and with keysize bits of prime.

ARGUMENTS

       -a algorithm
           Specify the key algorithm class: Supported classes are RSA, DSA, DH, ECC and ECX. In
           addition to these strings, the algorithm can be specified as a DNSSEC signing
           algorithm that will be used with this key; for example, NSEC3RSASHA1 maps to RSA,
           ECDSAP256SHA256 maps to ECC, and ED25519 to ECX. The default class is "RSA".

       -b keysize
           Create the key pair with keysize bits of prime. For ECC keys, the only valid values
           are 256 and 384, and the default is 256. For ECX kyes, the only valid values are 256
           and 456, and the default is 256.

       -e
           For RSA keys only, use a large exponent.

       -i id
           Create key objects with id. The id is either an unsigned short 2 byte or an unsigned
           long 4 byte number.

       -m module
           Specify the PKCS#11 provider module. This must be the full path to a shared library
           object implementing the PKCS#11 API for the device.

       -P
           Set the new private key to be non-sensitive and extractable. The allows the private
           key data to be read from the PKCS#11 device. The default is for private keys to be
           sensitive and non-extractable.

       -p PIN
           Specify the PIN for the device. If no PIN is provided on the command line,
           pkcs11-keygen will prompt for it.

       -q
           Quiet mode: suppress unnecessary output.

       -S
           For Diffie-Hellman (DH) keys only, use a special prime of 768, 1024 or 1536 bit size
           and base (aka generator) 2. If not specified, bit size will default to 1024.

       -s slot
           Open the session with the given PKCS#11 slot. The default is slot 0.
