Check key passphrase

public key

How can we check the private key passphrase?

Use the following command:

ssk-keygen -y
  • If the input is the correct passphrase, the system will show you the related public key.
  • for the wrong passphrase, you’ll receive load failed.
  • If the key has no passphrase, the system won’t ask you for a passphrase and will immediately show you the associated public key.
