NAME

       silcd - SILC server

SYNOPSIS

       silcd [ -f file | -d | -D | -x | -h | -F | -C path | -V ]

DESCRIPTION

       Silcd  is a server for SILC, Secure Internet Live Conferencing network.

OPTIONS

       -f FILE   Read configuration from FILE

       -d        Enable debugging (Implies -F)

       -D LEVEL  Enable debug messages of level LEVEL and lower (Implies -F)

       -x        Enable hexdumps (Implies -d)

       -F        Don´t fork.  Run silcd on foreground.

       -h        Display help message

       -V        Display version

       -C PATH   Create new public key pair. See KEY GENERATION for options.

LONG OPTIONS

       --config-file=FILE      Same as -f

       --debug=STRING          Same as -d, limit to messages *STRING*

       --debug-level=LEVEL     Same as -D

       --hexdump               Same as -x

       --foreground            Same as -F

       --version               Same as -V

       --create-key-pair=PATH  Same as -C

KEY GENERATION

       -C must be followed directly with a path to directory  into  which  the
       private  and  public  keys  will be written to. When generating new key
       pair for silcd (-C), the following extra switches apply:

       --pkcs=PKCS       Set the public key algorithm of public key pair.  For
       example rsa.

       --bits=VALUE      Set the length of public key pair, in bits.

       --identifier=ID   Set ID as public key identifier.

       The identifier has the format of:

       UN=<username>,   HN=<hostname   or   IP>,  RN=<real  name>,  E=<email>,
       O=<organization>, C=<country>

       Both  UN  and  HN  are  mandatory,  all  the  rest  are  optional   but
       recommended.  If no --identifier is used, an identifier will be created
       automatically.

       Example:

       silcd -C /etc/silcd --identifier="UN=foobar, HN=foo.bar.com, RN=Foo  T.
       Bar, E=foo@bar.com, C=FI"

FILES

       There  are  two configuration files for silcd: /etc/silc/silcd.conf for
       server configuration and /etc/silc/silcalgs.conf for SIM (SILC Modules)
       configuration.    Do   note   that  silcalgs.conf  is  only  needed  if
       cryptographic algorithms are built as separate modules.
