Dropbear and OpenSSH SSH implementations have different private key formats. dropbearconvert can convert between the two.

Encrypted private keys are not supported, use ssh-keygen(1) to decrypt them first.

output_type
  Either dropbear or openssh
input_file
  An existing Dropbear or OpenSSH private key file
output_file
