NAME
       publickey - public key database

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/publickey

DESCRIPTION
       /etc/publickey  is  the public key database used for secure networking.
       Each entry in the database consists of a network user name  (which  may
       either  refer  to  a user or a hostname), followed by the user's public
       key (in hex  notation),	a  colon,  and	then  the  user's  secret  key
       encrypted with its login password (also in hex notation).

       This file is altered either by the user through the chkey(1) command or
       by the system administrator through the newkey(8)  command.   The  file
       /etc/publickey  should  only  contain  data  on the Yellow Pages master
       machine, where it is converted into the YP database publickey.byname.

       chkey(1), publickey(3R), newkey(8), ypupdated(8C)
