PKEYPARAM(1SSL) 						      OpenSSL							   PKEYPARAM(1SSL)

NAME
openssl-pkeyparam, pkeyparam - public key algorithm parameter processing tool SYNOPSIS
openssl pkeyparam [-help] [-in filename] [-out filename] [-text] [-noout] [-engine id] [-check] DESCRIPTION
The pkeyparam command processes public key algorithm parameters. They can be checked for correctness and their components printed out. OPTIONS
-help Print out a usage message. -in filename This specifies the input filename to read parameters from or standard input if this option is not specified. -out filename This specifies the output filename to write parameters to or standard output if this option is not specified. -text Prints out the parameters in plain text in addition to the encoded version. -noout Do not output the encoded version of the parameters. -engine id Specifying an engine (by its unique id string) will cause pkeyparam to attempt to obtain a functional reference to the specified engine, thus initialising it if needed. The engine will then be set as the default for all available algorithms. -check This option checks the correctness of parameters. EXAMPLE
Print out text version of parameters: openssl pkeyparam -in param.pem -text NOTES
There are no -inform or -outform options for this command because only PEM format is supported because the key type is determined by the PEM headers. SEE ALSO
