NETKEY(1)                                               NETKEY(1)

     NAME
          netkey - calculate response to authentication challenge

     SYNOPSIS
          netkey

     DESCRIPTION
          Netkey calculates a response to a challenge made by a system
          to authenticate a user, based on a shared secret (password),
          using the same algorithm as a SecureNet device.  It reads
          and writes /dev/cons.  It prompts once for the secret (echo
          is turned off).  It then repeatedly prompts for a remote
          system's challenge, and once given it, calculates and prints
          the corresponding response.  It exits on an empty challenge
          or end of file.
