OpenSSL "pkeyparam" Command Options


What can I use OpenSSL "pkeyparam" command for? What are options supported by the "pkeyparam" command?



OpenSSL "pkeyparam" command is a utility to view and manage key generation parameter files.

Note that "pkeyparam" command is replacing the "dsaparam" command.

Here are options supported by the "pkeyparam" command:

-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.

    prints out the parameters in plain text in addition to the encoded version.

    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.
