DSA Private Key

Description#

General#

  • Documentation: RFC 6976
  • Summary: The Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) can be used to authenticate to services. It works with a public and private key set. The client uses the private key to authenticate to the service that has the public key. Only the private key is sensitive. The public key is not sensitive and can be distributed freely. See the RFC 6976 for more information. More details about cryptographic keys can be found in our FAQ.

Revoke the secret#

Revoking the key depends on the service being used.

Check for suspicious activity#

Checking for suspicious activity depends on the service being used.
