       chkey - change user's secure RPC key pair

       [ ] [

       is  used	 to change a user's secure RPC public key and secret key pair.
       prompts for the old secure-rpc password and verifies that it is correct
       by decrypting the secret key.

       If  the	user  has not already used to decrypt and store the secret key
       with registers the secret key with the local daemon.  If the secure-rpc
       password does not match the login password, prompts for the login pass‐
       word.  uses the login password to encrypt  the  user's  secret  Diffie-
       Hellman (192 bit) cryptographic key.

       ensures	that  the  login password and the secure-rpc password are kept
       the same.

       The key pair can be stored in the file (see publickey(4)), the NIS map,
       or entries in the LDAP directory.  If a new secret key is generated, it
       will be registered with the local daemon.

       If the source of the is not specified with  the	option,	 consults  the
       entry   in  the	name  service  switch  configuration  file  (see  nss‐
       witch.conf(4)).	If the entry specifies one and only one	 source,  then
       will  change the key in the specified name service.  However, if multi‐
       ple name services are listed, cannot decide which source to update  and
       will  display  an  error	 message.   The user should specify the source
       explicitly with the option.

       Non root users are not allowed to change their key pair in the file.

       Re-encrypt the existing secret key with the user's
		   login password.

       Update the  NIS database.

       Update the  database.

       Update the  LDAP database.

       HP-UX 11i Version 2 is the last HP-UX release on	 which	NIS+  is  sup‐
       ported.	 LDAP  is the recommended replacement for NIS+.	 HP fully sup‐
       ports the industry standard naming services based on LDAP.

       was developed by Sun Microsystems, Inc.
