age-keygen - generate age(1) key pairs
age-keygen [-o OUTPUT] age-keygen -y [-o OUTPUT] [INPUT]
age-keygen generates a new native age(1) key pair, and outputs the identity to standard output or to the OUTPUT file. The output includes the public key and the current time as comments. If the output is not going to a terminal, age-keygen prints the public key to standard error.
-o, --output=OUTPUT Write the identity to OUTPUT instead of standard output. If OUTPUT already exists, it is not overwritten. -y Read an identity file from INPUT or from standard input and output the corresponding recipient(s), one per line, with no comments. --version Print the version and exit.
