NAME
       dropbearconvert - convert between Dropbear and OpenSSH private key for-
       mats

SYNOPSIS
       dropbearconvert input_type output_type input_file output_file

DESCRIPTION
       Dropbear	and OpenSSH SSH	implementations	 have  different  private  key
       formats.	 dropbearconvert can convert between the two.

       Dropbear	 uses the same SSH public key format as	OpenSSH, it can	be ex-
       tracted from a private key by using dropbearkey -y

       Encrypted private keys are not supported, use ssh-keygen(1) to  decrypt
       them first.

       input_file
	      An existing Dropbear or OpenSSH private key file

       output_file
	      The path to write	the converted private key file.	For client au-
	      thentication ~/.ssh/id_dropbear is loaded	by default
