gnunet-ecc(1) manipulate GNUnet ECC key files


gnunet-ecc [options]FILENAME


gnunet-ecc can be used to create an ECC private key and to print the corresponding public key. You must specify a filename containing an ECC private key in GNUnet format as an argument. If the file does not exist, gnunet-ecc will create a key. This may then take a while. If the option -p is given, the corresponding public key will be printed to the console.


-g COUNT, --generate-keys=COUNT
Create COUNT public-private key pairs and write them to FILENAME. Used for creating a file for testing.
-p, --print-public-key
Print the corresponding public key to stdout. This is the value used for PKEY records in GNS.
-P, --print-peer-identity
Print the corresponding peer identity (hash of the public key) to stdout. This hash is used for the name of peers.
Use the configuration file FILENAME.
-h, --help
Print short help on options.
Use LOGLEVEL for logging. Valid values are DEBUG, INFO, WARNING and ERROR.
