KEYINFO(1)              FreeBSD General Commands Manual             KEYINFO(1)

NAME
     keyinfo - display current S/Key sequence number and seed

SYNOPSIS
     keyinfo [username]

DESCRIPTION
     keyinfo takes an optional user name and displays the user's current
     sequence number and seed found in the S/Key database /etc/skeykeys.

     The command can be useful when generating a list of passwords for use on
     a field trip, by combining with the command key(1) in the form:

           key -n  <number of passwords> `keyinfo` | lpr

     The optional username argument specifies the S/Key user for whom to
     display the information.  The default is to display S/Key information on
     the user who invokes the command.  Only the superuser can ask for another
     user's key information.

EXAMPLES
     Usage example:

           $ keyinfo

     This would produce the following output:

           98 ws91340

DIAGNOSTICS
     The keyinfo utility exits with status 0 if a key for the requested user
     has been found, else with status 1.

SEE ALSO
     key(1), keyinit(1)

AUTHORS
     Original command by Phil Karn, Neil M. Haller and John S. Walden.
     Rewritten in Perl by Jorg Wunsch so that it could be made setuid, with
     the S/Key keys file read-protected from the users.  Rewritten in C by
     Warner Losh.
