publickey - public key database
/etc/publickey is a local public key database that is used
for secure RPC. The /etc/publickey file can be used in con-
junction with or instead of other publickey databases,
including the NIS publickey map and the NIS+ publickey map.
Each entry in the database consists of a network user name
(which may refer to either a user or a hostname), followed
by the user's public key (in hex notation), a colon, and
then the user's secret key encrypted with a password (also
in hex notation).
The /etc/publickey file contains a default entry for nobody.
