p{white-space: pre-wrap;}

Generates an ECDSA key.

Synopsys

create ssl ecdsaKey <keyFile> -curve ( P_256 | P_384 ) [-keyform ( DER | PEM )] [-des | -des3] {-password }

Arguments

keyFile

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

Maximum value: 63

curve

Curve id to generate ECDSA key. Only P_256 and P_384 are supported

Possible values: P_256, P_384

Default value: FIPSEXP_F4

keyform

Format in which the ECDSA key file is stored on the appliance.

Possible values: DER, PEM

Default value: PEM

des

Encrypt the generated ECDSA key by using the DES algorithm. On the command line, you are prompted to enter the pass phrase (password) that is used to encrypt the key.

des3

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

password

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

Maximum value: 31

Example
