Calculate key identifiers of a key or certificate

Synopsis

pki --keyid[--in file|--keyid hex][--type type] [--id id-type] [--format format] [--debug level]
pki --keyid--options file

Description

This sub-command of pki(1) calculates key identifiers of private keys and certificates.

Options

-h,  --help

Print usage information with a summary of the available options.

-v,  --debug level

Set debug level, default: 1.

-+,  --options file

Read command line options from file.

-i,  --in file

Input file. If not given the input is read from STDIN.

-x,  --keyid hex

Smartcard or TPM private key object handle in hex format with an optional 0x prefix.

-t,  --type type

Type of input. One of priv (private key), rsa (RSA private key), ecdsa (ECDSA private key), bliss (BLISS private key), pub (public key), pkcs10 (PKCS#10 certificate request), x509 (X.509 certificate), defaults to priv.

-I,  --id id-type

Type of identifier. One of all (all identifiers), spk (SHA-1 hash of subjectPublicKey), spki (SHA-1 hash of subjectPublicKeyInfo), defaults to all.

-f,  --format format

Output format. One of pretty (user-readable output), hex (hexadecimal encoding), base64 (Base64 encoding), bin (raw binary data), defaults to pretty.

Examples

Calculate key identifiers of an RSA private key:

  $ pki --keyid --in key.der
  subjkey (SHA-1 of subjectPublicKey):
               6a:9c:74:d1:f8:89:79:89:f6:5a:94:e9:89:f1...
  keyid (SHA-1 of subjectPublicKeyInfo):
               6e:55:dc:7e:9c:a5:58:d9:5b:e3:c7:13:14:e1...

Calculate key identifiers of an X.509 certificate:

  $ pki --keyid --in cert.der --type x509
  subjkey (SHA-1 of subjectPublicKey):
               6a:9c:74:d1:f8:89:79:89:f6:5a:94:e9:89:f1...
  keyid (SHA-1 of subjectPublicKeyInfo):
               6e:55:dc:7e:9c:a5:58:d9:5b:e3:c7:13:14:e1...

Calculate keyid in simple hex encoding of an X.509 certificate:

  $ pki --keyid --in cert.der --type x509 --id spki --format hex
  6e55dc7e9ca558d95be3c71314e1...
