KEYLOGIN(1)                 General Commands Manual                KEYLOGIN(1)



NAME
       keylogin - decrypt and store secret key

SYNOPSIS
       keylogin

DESCRIPTION
       keylogin  prompts  the  user  for  their login password, and uses it to
       decrypt the user's secret key  stored  in  the  publickey(5)  database.
       Once  decrypted,  the  user's  key  is  stored  by the local key server
       process keyserv(8C) to be used by any secure network services, such  as
       NFS.

       Normally,  login(1)  does this work when the user logs onto the system,
       but running keylogin may be necessary if the user did not type a  pass-
       word to login(1).
