The seckeygen script is a shell (non-Windows) or batch (Windows) script that maintains keys in a flat-file format compatible with the VersionedDataSealer plugin. It is designed to be run on a scheduled basis with a fixed set of options to generate new keys and maintain a certain number of older keys, keeping the file from growing larger than intended.

The following command line options are available:






Output directory to use, defaults to the directory containing the script

-f filename

Path to file to create or maintain, defaults to sealer.keys


Number of lines to allow in the file, defaults to 14


Size of key in bytes to generate, defaults to 16


Non-Windows only, the user account to create the file under


Non-Windows only, the group account to create the file under
