softhsm2-keyconv - Man Page

converting from BIND to PKCS#8 key file format


softhsm2-keyconv --in path --out path [--pin PIN]


softhsm2-keyconv can convert BIND .private-key files to the PKCS#8 file format. This is so that you can import the PKCS#8 file into libsofthsm using the command softhsm2-util. If you have another file format, then openssl probably can help you to convert it into the PKCS#8 file format.

--in path

The path to the input file.

--out path

--pin PIN

--version,  -v

The following command can be used to convert a BIND .private-key file to a PKCS#8 file:

softhsm2-keyconv --in \
    --out rsa.pem
