tarsnap-keymgmt — generate subsets of tarsnap(1) key files
|tarsnap-keymgmt|| --outkeyfile |
|tarsnap-keymgmt|| --print-key-id |
|tarsnap-keymgmt|| --print-key-permissions |
tarsnap-keymgmt reads the provided key files and writes a new key file (specified by --outkeyfile
new-key-file) containing only the keys required for the operations specified via the -r (list and extract archives), -w (write archives), -d (delete archives), and --nuke flags. Note that -d implies -r since it is impossible to delete an individual archive without being able to read it; while a key file generated with --nuke can be used to delete all the archives stored, but not individual archives.
The following list shows which permissions are required for various tarsnap(1) command modes.
requires either (1) -d (archive deleting), (2) -w (archive creating), or (3) --nuke keys.
requires either (1) both -w (archive writing) and -r (archive reading) keys, or (2) -d (archive deleting) keys.
requires -d (archive deleting) keys, since it needs to be able to delete corrupted archives.
If the --passphrased option is specified, the user will be prompted to enter a passphrase (twice) to be used to encrypt the key file.
If the --passphrase-mem
maxmem option is specified, a maximum of
maxmem bytes of RAM will be used in the scrypt key derivation function to encrypt the key file; it may be necessary to set this option if a key file is being created on a system with far more RAM than the system on which the key file will be used.
If the --passphrase-time
maxtime option is specified, a maximum of approximately
maxtime seconds will be used in the scrypt key derivation function to encrypt the key file.
Note that if none of the -w, -r, -d, or --nuke options are specified, a key file will be produced which does not contain any keys. This is probably not very useful.
key-file option displays the 64-bit integer corresponding to the key's machine number. This may be useful for scripts or GUIs which manage a user's Tarsnap account, but is not likely to be helpful for command-line use.
key-file option displays the permissions which the key possesses.
The --version option prints the version number of tarsnap-keymgmt, then exits.
