 NAME
      publickey - public key database

 SYNOPSIS
      etc/publickey

 DESCRIPTION
      /etc/publickey is a local public key database that is used for secure
      RPC. The /etc/publickey file can be used in conjunction with or
      instead of other publickey databases, including the NIS publickey map
      and the NIS+ publickey map. Each entry in the database consists of a
      network user name (which may refer to either a user or a hostname),
      followed by the user's public key (in hex notation), a colon, and then
      the user's secret key encrypted with a password (also in hex
      notation).

      The /etc/publickey file contains a default entry for nobody.

 AUTHOR
