publickey(4)                     File Formats                     publickey(4)



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.
