A tool for easily generating ipfs keypairs

Table of Contents

Installation

$ go get github.com/whyrusleeping/ipfs-key

Usage

When run, it will write the bytes of the serialized private key to stdout. By default, a 2048 bit RSA key will be generated. In this case the key size can be changed by specifying the -bitsize option. The key type can be changed by specifying the -type option (rsa or ed25519).

$ ipfs-key -bitsize=4096 > my-rsa4096.key
$ ipfs-key -type=ed25519 > my-ed.key
