NAME
       ntp-keygen - generate public and private keys

SYNOPSIS
       ntp-keygen  [ -deGgHIMnPT ] [ -c [RSA-MD2 | RSA-MD5 | RSA-SHA | RSA-SHA1 | RSA-MDC2 | RSA-
       RIPEMD160 | DSA-SHA | DSA-SHA1 ] ] [ -i name ] [ -p password ] [ -S [ RSA | DSA ] ]  [  -s
       name ] [ -v nkeys ]

DESCRIPTION
       This program generates cryptographic data files used by the NTPv4 authentication and iden-
       tification schemes. It generates MD5 key files used  in	symmetric  key	cryptography.  In
       addition,  if the OpenSSL software library has been installed, it generates keys, certifi-
       cate and identity files used in public key cryptography. These files are used  for  cookie
       encryption,  digital signature and challenge/response identification algorithms compatible
       with the Internet standard security infrastructure.
