       clevis-encrypt-sss - Encrypts using a Shamir's Secret Sharing policy


       clevis encrypt sss CONFIG [-y] < PT > JWE


       The clevis encrypt sss command encrypts using a Shamir’s Secret Sharing policy. Its only
       argument is the JSON configuration object.

       Shamir’s Secret Sharing (SSS) provides a way to mix pins together to create sophisticated
       unlocking and high availability policies. SSS is a thresholding scheme. It creates a key
       and divides it into a number of pieces. Each piece is encrypted using another pin
       (possibly even SSS recursively). Additionally, you define the threshold t. If at least t
       pieces can be decrypted, then the encryption key can be recovered and decryption can

       For example, let’s create a high-availability setup using Tang:

           $ cfg='{"t":1,"pins":{"tang":[{"url":...},{"url":...}]}}'
           $ clevis encrypt sss "$cfg" < PT > JWE

       In this policy, we are declaring that we have a threshold of 1, but that there are
       multiple key fragments encrypted using different Tang servers. Since our threshold is 1,
       so long as any of the Tang servers are available, decryption will succeed. As always,
       decryption is simply:

           $ clevis decrypt < JWE > PT


       This command uses the following configuration properties:

       •   t (integer) : Number of pins required for decryption (REQUIRED)

       •   pins (object) : Pins used for encrypting fragments (REQUIRED)

       The format of the pins property is as follows:

           {PIN:CFG,...} OR {PIN:[CFG,CFG,...],...}

       When the list version of the format is used, multiple pins of that type will receive key


-y : Automatically answer yes for all questions. For the tang pin, it will skip the
           advertisement trust check, which can be useful in automated deployments:

               $ cfg='{"t":1,"pins":{"tang":[{"url":...},{"url":...}]}}'
               $ clevis encrypt sss "$cfg" -y < PT > JWE
