.SH NAME
mono-configuration-crypto, \- Mono configuration utility to manage encryption keys and encrypt/decrypt config file sections
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B mono-configuration-crypto <options>
.SH DESCRIPTION
mono-configuration-crypto is a utility to manage mono encryption key container store and to encrypt/decrypt config
file sections.
.SH OPTIONS
.TP
.B -h, -?, --help
Show usage information
.TP
.B -v, --verbose
Show verbose information (including exception stacktraces)
.TP
.B -m, --machine, --global
Use machine (global) store for all the key actions. Note that on Unix machines global store is located in
\fI/usr/share/.mono\fR and modifying it requires root user permissions.
.TP
.B -u, --user, --local
Use local (user) store for all the key actions. User key store is located in the \fI$HOME/.config/.mono\fR
directory. This is the default location used by mono-configuration-crypto.
.TP
.B -l, --list
List all the key container names in the store. Note that some container names might be just GUID strings.
.TP
.B -c, --create
Creates an RSA public/private key pair. If the specified container (see the \fI-f\fR option) already exists, the
operation will fail.
.TP
.B -i, --import
Imports key to a container. Imports a key from file (specified by the \fI-f\fR option) and puts it as the first key
in the specified container (see the \fI-n\fR option). If container exists, its first key is replaced. If container
doesn't exist, it is created. No validation is performed on the key value - this is left to the protection provider or
encryption code which uses the key.
.TP
.B -x, --export
Exports key from a container. Exports a key from indicated container (see the \fI-n\fR option) and puts it in the
specified file (see the \fI-f\fR option) as XML. The file can later be used to import the key.
.TP
.B -r, --remove
Remove a container. Physically removes the container file from disk.
.TP
.B -f, --file=VALUE
File name for import or export operations. All options which read or write anything to/from files require this option
to be present on the command line.
.TP
.B -cf, --config-file=VALUE
Config file name. Specifies base name of the config file, used in encrypt and decrypt operations. Files are sought for
case-insensitively. Defaults to \fIWeb.config\fR
.TP
.B -n, --name=VALUE
Container name. If this option is absent from the command line it defaults to \fIMonoFrameworkConfigurationKey\fR (the
default key name used by System.Configuration section encryption/decryption code)
.TP
.B -s, --size=VALUE
Key size. Specifies the key length for the create operation (see the \fI-c\fR option). Defaults to 1024.
.TP
.B -p, --path=VALUE
Application physical path. Used when encrypting/decrypting configuration file sections to specify the directory in which
the configuration file lives (see the \fI-cf\fR option). Defaults to current directory.
.TP
.B -d, --dec, --decrypt=VALUE
Decrypt configuration section. Configuration section must follow the format used when calling ConfigurationManager.GetSection,
i.e.: path/to/section. Only sections known to the configuration system will be processed.
.TP
.B -e, --enc, --encrypt=VALUE
Encrypt configuration section. Configuration section must follow the format used when calling ConfigurationManager.GetSection,
i.e.: path/to/section. Only sections known to the configuration system will be processed.
