dropbearkey - create private keys for the use with dropbear(8)
dropbearkey -t type -f file [-s bits] [-y]
dropbearkey generates a RSA or DSS format SSH private key, and saves it to a file for the use with the dropbear(8) SSH 2 server. Note that some SSH implementations use the term "DSA" rather than "DSS", they mean the same thing.
-t type Type of key to generate. Must be one of rsa or dss. -f file Write the secret key to the file file. -s bits Set the key size to bits bits, should be multiple of 8 (optional). -y Just print the publickey and fingerprint for the private key in file.
generate a host-key: # dropbearkey -t rsa -f /etc/dropbear/dropbear_rsa_host_key extract a public key suitable for authorized_keys from private key: # dropbearkey -y -f id_rsa | grep "^ssh-rsa " >> authorized_keys
