ekey-setkey(8) System Manager's Manual ekey-setkey(8)

NAME

ekey-setkey - Entropy Key Long Term Key programmer

SYNOPSIS

ekey-setkey [-s SerialNumber] [-m MasterKey] path

DESCRIPTION

ekey-setkey is a low level tool which sets the long-term key of an Entropy Key using its Master Key. The keyring is updated with the new session key. Any running ekeyd will not be updated with the new key and may interfere with the re-keying process. Users may use the ekey-rekey tool instead as this performs the relevant ekeydctl operations to ensure any running ekeyd is updated apropriately.
 
This is a tool for advanced users only. Most users should use ekey-rekey instead.

OPTIONS

-s
Specifies the serial number of the key to re-key.
-m
Specifies the Master Key of the device
path
Specifies which device node to use to access the Entropy Key.
