revoke private keys (of egos) in GNUnet
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a key has been revoked, to create a revocation certificate for later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 they 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
- Check if the given KEY (ASCII-encoded public key required) has been revoked.
- Number of epochs for which the revocation should be valid (default: 1)
- Calculate or perform revocation for the ego with the given NAME.
- Actually perform the revocation as soon as possible (do not just generate a revocation certificate, use it). Must be supplied to actually perform the revocation.
- 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 revocation.
- Use the configuration file FILENAME.
- Print short help on options.
- Use LOGLEVEL for logging. Valid values are DEBUG, INFO, WARNING and ERROR.
- Print GNUnet version number.
The full documentation for gnunet is maintained as a Texinfo manual. If the info(1) and gnunet programs are properly installed at your site, the command
should give you access to the complete handbook,
will give you access to a tutorial for developers.
Depending on your installation, this information is also available in gnunet(7) and gnunet-c-tutorial(7).
