Arguments

keyFile

Name for and, optionally, path to the DSA key file. /nsconfig/ssl/ is the default path.

Maximum value: 63

bits

Size, in bits, of the DSA key.

des3

Encrypt the generated DSA key by using the Triple-DES algorithm. On the command line, you are prompted to enter the pass phrase (password) that will be used to encrypt the key.

aes256

Encrypt the generated DSA key by using the AES algorithm.

password

Pass phrase to use for encryption if DES or DES3 option is selected.

Maximum value: 31

pkcs8

Create the private key in PKCS#8 format.

Example
