       publickey - public key database


       /etc/publickey  is   a  local   public  key  database  that  is	used  for secure RPC. The
       /etc/publickey file can be used in conjunction with or instead of  other  publickey  data-
       bases,  including  the  NIS  publickey  map and the NIS+ publickey map.	Each entry in the
       database consists of a network user name (which may refer to either a user or a hostname),
       followed  by  the user's public key (in hex notation), a colon, and then the user's secret
       key encrypted with a password (also in hex notation).

       The /etc/publickey file contains a default entry for nobody.
