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 con-
     junction 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.
