PKEYPARAM(1)			    OpenSSL			  PKEYPARAM(1)

NAME
       openssl-pkeyparam, pkeyparam - public key algorithm parameter
       processing tool

SYNOPSIS
       openssl pkeyparam [-help] [-in filename]	[-out filename]	[-text]
       [-noout]	[-engine id] [-check]

DESCRIPTION
       The pkeyparam command processes public key algorithm parameters.	 They
       can be checked for correctness and their	components printed out.

OPTIONS
       -help
	   Print out a usage message.

       -in filename
	   This	specifies the input filename to	read parameters	from or
	   standard input if this option is not	specified.

       -out filename
	   This	specifies the output filename to write parameters to or
	   standard output if this option is not specified.

       -text
	   Prints out the parameters in	plain text in addition to the encoded
	   version.

       -noout
	   Do not output the encoded version of	the parameters.

       -engine id
	   Specifying an engine	(by its	unique id string) will cause pkeyparam
	   to attempt to obtain	a functional reference to the specified
	   engine, thus	initialising it	if needed. The engine will then	be set
	   as the default for all available algorithms.

       -check
	   This	option checks the correctness of parameters.

EXAMPLE
       Print out text version of parameters:

	openssl	pkeyparam -in param.pem	-text

NOTES
       There are no -inform or -outform	options	for this command because only
       PEM format is supported because the key type is determined by the PEM
       headers.
