Usage guidelines

After you execute this command to enter the public key view, type the public key. Spaces and carriage returns are allowed, but are not saved.

To configure a peer host public key on the local device, first obtain the peer public key in hexadecimal notation, and then perform the following tasks on the local device:

  1. Execute the public-key peer command to enter public key view.

  2. Type the public key.

  3. Execute the peer-public-key end command to save the public key and return to system view.

The public key you type in the public key view must be in a correct format. If the peer device is an HPE device, use the display public-key local public command to display and record its public key.


# Assign the name key1 to the peer host public key and enter public key view.

<Sysname> system-view
[Sysname] public-key peer key1
Enter public key view. Return to system view with "peer-public-key end" command.
