astgenkey This script generates an RSA private and public key pair in PEM format
for use by Asterisk. The private key should be kept a secret, as it can
be used to fake your systems identity. Thus by default (without the
-n ) the script will create a passphrase-encrypted copy of your secret key:
without entering the passphrase you wont be able to use it.
However if you want to use such a key with Asterisk, youll have to start
it interactively, because the scripts that start asterisk cant use that
The key is identified by a name. If you dont write the name on the
command-line youll be prompted for one. The outputs of the script are:
The public key: not secret. Send this to the other side.
The private key: secret.
Those files should be copied to
(The private key: on your system. The public key: on other systems)
