"CHECKPUBKEYRSA" - check public key file against the encrypted file

This command is used to check whether the specified public key file was used for encrypted file or not.

Use -addkeyhash switch to add hash information using command encryptrsa.

Syntax

CHECKPUBKEYRSA="c:\pathto\publickeyfile.aepkey" c:\path2\encryptedfile.aep

or

CHECKPUBKEYRSA="c:\pathto\publickeyfile.aepkey" c:\path2\*.aep

Compatible switches

-RECURSE

-EXCLUDE

This command generates the report looking like

CHECKPUBKEYRSA="C:\aepkeys\test_2048bit_public.aepkey" "C:\temp\fakedisk\Accounting\*.*"

Checking RSA Key

The Legend:

[YES] - yes, this public key file was used for file encryption

[NO] - no, another public key file was used for encryption

[NOHASH] - this file has no hash information about public key

[ERR] - other error

Processing encrypted file(s)...

C:\temp\fakedisk\Accounting\Affiliated Company.doc.aep .... [NOHASH]

C:\temp\fakedisk\Accounting\Lower of Cost or Market.xls.aep .... [YES]

Errorlevels

It is possible to analyze the returned code in your batch script in case when you specified single encrypted file as the program argument, i.e. not the file mask. In this case aepcmd returns errorlevels:

0 - it is the public key file was used for encryption of this file. This code is also retured, when you specified single file, but it does not exist.

6 - this encrypted file has no hash information about used public key file (-addkeyhash switch was not used together with encryptrsa command).

7 - the specified public key file is not valid for this encrypted file. I.e. another public key file was used for encryption

other code - error
