       newkey - create a new Diffie-Hellman key pair in the publickey database



       establishes  new	 public	 keys  for  users and machines on the network.
       These keys are needed when using secure RPC or secure NFS service.

       prompts for a password for the given username or hostname and then cre‐
       ates  a	new public/secret Diffie-Hellman 192 bit key pair for the user
       or host.	 The secret key is encrypted with the given password.  The key
       pair  can  be  stored  in the file, the NIS map, or entries in the LDAP

       consults the entry in the name service switch configuration  file  (see
       nsswitch.conf(4))  to  determine	 which naming service is used to store
       the secure RPC keys.  If the entry specifies  a	unique	name  service,
       will  add the key in the specified name service.	 However, if there are
       multiple name services listed, cannot decide which source to update and
       will  display  an  error	 message.  The user is required to specify the
       source explicitly with the option.

       In the case of NIS, should be run by the superuser on  the  master  NIS
       server  for  that  domain.   In	the case of LDAP, should be run by the
       superuser on a machine that has permission to update the entries in the
       LDAP directory.

	      Update the database in the specified source:

       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.
