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.

OPTIONS

       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

EXAMPLE

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