gnunet-revocation - revoke private keys (of egos) in GNUnet


gnunet-revocation [options]


gnunet-revocation can be used to verify if a key has been revoked, to create a revocation
certificate for later revocation, to instantly revoke a key and to use a pre-generated
revocation certificate to revoke a key. Upon successful revocation, all peers will be
informed about the invalidity of the key. As this is an expensive operation, GNUnet
requires the issuer of the revocation to perform an expensive proof-of-work computation
before he will be allowed to perform the revocation. gnunet-revocation will perform this
computation. The computation can be performed ahead of time, with the resulting
revocation certificate being stored in a file for later "instant" use. gnunet-revocation
also makes is possible to resume the pre-calculation of a revocation --- simply abort a
running proof-of-work calculation with CTRL-C, and the existing revocation certificate
file will contain the status of the computation. Note that performing a revocation proof-
of-work is deliberately VERY expensive. Depending on your CPU, the calculation can take
days or weeks.


-t KEY, --test=KEY
Check if the given KEY (ASCII-encoded public key required) has been revoked.

-R NAME, --revoke=NAME
Calculate or perform revocation for the ego with the given NAME.

-p, --perform
Actually perform the revocation as soon as possible (do not just generate a
revocation certificate, use it). Must be supplied to actually perform the

-f NAME, --filename=NAME
Use NAME as the name of the file that is to contain the revocation certificate.
Intermediate computation results will be stored here, as well as the final
revocation certificate. When used together with -p, this file will be inspected to
see if it contains a valid certificate for instant revocation, in which case the
revocation can be performed instantly. If the given file contains anything (a
valid certificate, with or without the completed proof-of-work) there is no need to
supply the "-R" option or to still have the private key of the ego to perform the

Use the configuration file FILENAME.

-h, --help
Print short help on options.

Use LOGLEVEL for logging. Valid values are DEBUG, INFO, WARNING and ERROR.

-v, --version
Print GNUnet version number.
