       keylogin - decrypt and store secret key with keyserv

       [ ]

       The  command  prompts for a password, and uses it to decrypt the user's
       secret key. The key may be found in the file  (see  publickey(4)),  the
       NIS  map	 or  entries  in the LDAP directory in the user's home domain.
       The sources and their lookup order are specified in the file (see  nss‐

       Once decrypted, the user's secret key is stored by the local key server
       process, This stored key is used when issuing requests  to  any	secure

	      The  option  should be used by the administrator when the host's
	      entry in the publickey database has changed, and	the  file  has
	      become out-of-date with respect to the actual key pair stored in
	      the publickey database.

	      The permissions on the file are such that it  may	 be  read  and
	      written by the superuser but by no other user on the system.
