a Mini vMac Extra


this command line tool for your computer

MkKeysTl is a command line version of MakeKeys. It can be used to automate generating secret and public key pairs. It is written to be platform independent, using the C standard library.

It takes three arguments: First, a path to a text file containing truly random bytes in hexadecimal (not psuedo-random). Second, a path to a new output file in which to put the secret key. And third, a path to a new output file in which to put the public key.

MkKeysTl is in part descended from MacPGP source code, which, as far as I can tell, allows derived works for noncommercial use.

Download source code (for programmers who want to see how it works or modify it)

mkkeystl-1.02.src.tgz (info) unix style

mkkeystl-1.02.src_d.zip (info) Classic Macintosh style: a zipped hfs disk image and checksum file. The disk image can be mounted with Mini vMac.


If you find MkKeysTl useful, please consider helping the Gryphel Project, of which it is a part.
