MKDHPARAMS(8)		    Double Precision, Inc.		 MKDHPARAMS(8)

NAME
       mkdhparams - create DH parameter	file

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/sbin/mkdhparams

DESCRIPTION
       This script creates new DH parameters and saves them in
       /usr/local/share/courier-imap/dhparams.pem. If this file	already	exists
       and it's	less than 25 days old, the script returns immediately. If this
       file is over 25 days old, new DH	parameters get generated and the file
       gets replaced.

       This script is intended to be execute when the system boots, or from a
       monthly cron job.

FILES
       /usr/local/share/courier-imap/dhparams.pem
	   DH Parameter	file.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       BITS
	   Customize the DH parameter bit size.	The default value depends on
	   whether this	script uses OpenSSL or GnuTLS libraries. For OpenSSL
	   the default number of bits is 2048. GnuTLS uses a security level
	   setting, rather than	the number of bits, and	the default security
	   level is "high".

	   Note
	   It make take	several	minutes	to generate new	DH parameters with the
	   default strength.
