    Command:

    gendsa

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           openssl gendsa [-out filename] [-des] [-des3] [-idea] [-rand file(s)]
           [-engine id] [paramfile]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The gendsa command generates a DSA private key from a DSA parameter
           file (which will be typically generated by the openssl dsaparam
           command).
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -des|-des3|-idea
               These options encrypt the private key with the DES, triple DES, or
               the IDEA ciphers respectively before outputting it. A pass phrase
               is prompted for.  If none of these options is specified no
               encryption is used.
    
           -rand file(s)
               a file or files containing random data used to seed the random
               number generator, or an EGD socket (see RAND_egd(3)).  Multiple
               files can be specified separated by a OS-dependent character.  The
               separator is ; for MS-Windows, , for OpenVMS, and : for all others.
    
           -engine id
               specifying an engine (by its unique id string) will cause gendsa to
               attempt to obtain a functional reference to the specified engine,
               thus initialising it if needed. The engine will then be set as the
               default for all available algorithms.
    
           paramfile
               This option specifies the DSA parameter file to use. The parameters
               in this file determine the size of the private key. DSA parameters
               can be generated and examined using the openssl dsaparam command.
    
    
    

    NOTES

           DSA key generation is little more than random number generation so it
           is much quicker that RSA key generation for example.
