PUBLICKEY(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual		  PUBLICKEY(3)

NAME
     publickey, getpublickey, getsecretkey — get public or secret key

LIBRARY
     library “librpcsvc”

SYNOPSIS
     #include <rpc/rpc.h>
     #include <rpc/key_prot.h>

     int
     getpublickey(const char netname[MAXNETNAMELEN+1],
	 char publickey[HEXKEYBYTES+1]);

     int
     getsecretkey(char netname[MAXNETNAMELEN+1],
	 char secretkey[HEXKEYBYTES+1], char *passwd);

DESCRIPTION
     These routines are used to get public and secret keys from the YP data‐
     base.  The getsecretkey() function has an extra argument, passwd, which
     is used to decrypt the encrypted secret key stored in the database.  Both
     routines return 1 if they are successful in finding the key, 0 otherwise.
     The keys are returned as NULL-terminated, hexadecimal strings.  If the
     password supplied to getsecretkey() fails to decrypt the secret key, the
     routine will return 1 but the secretkey argument will be a NULL string
     (“”).
