This program is part of the DACS
For a jurisdiction configured on the host where this program is run, the
utility lists information about all known jurisdictions in the
same federation. It can also display information about the federation.
This program is also available as a DACS
Because this program may access the federation and jurisdiction key files (item
types federation_keys and jurisdiction_keys, respectively), only the
administrator should be able to run this command.
The program respects the -format
flag. Except for error messages,
information is printed to the standard output.
Only list information about the federation.
Equivalent to -j "".
Limit the output to the specified jurisdiction
name. As a special case, if the argument is the empty string, only
federation-scoped information will be returned.
Only the federation's or a jurisdiction's
public key (if known) will be displayed. If -j is given and is not the
empty string, that jurisdiction name is selected; if -j is given and is
the empty string, the federation is selected; and if the argument is absent,
the current jurisdiction is selected. A PEM [ RFC 1421, RFC
1422, RFC 1423, RFC 1424] formatted key is
In the current implementation, a jurisdiction's public key can only be provided
by one of the jurisdictions configured on the same host.
To list all jurisdictions in the same federation as jurisdiction J1, which must
be configured on this host:
To copy the public encryption key for J1 to pubkey:
% dacslist -uj J1 -k > pubkey
To display the public encryption key for J1's federation:
To retrieve the public encryption key for J1, which must be in the same
federation as J2:
% dacslist -uj J2 -k -j J1
To display information about the federation to which jurisdiction J1 belongs:
The program exits 0 if everything was fine, 1 if an error occurred. Error
messages are printed to stderr.
