Driftwood – Private Key Usage Verification
Driftwood is a tool that can enable you to lookup whether a private key is used for things like TLS or as a GitHub SSH key for a user.
Driftwood performs lookups with the computed public key, so the private key never leaves where you run the tool. Additionally it supports some basic password cracking for encrypted keys.
Three easy ways to get started.
Run with Docker
cat private.key | docker run --rm -i trufflesecurity/driftwood --pretty-json -
Run pre-built binary
Download the binary from the releases page and run it.
go install github.com/trufflesecurity/driftwood@latest
Minimal usage is
$ driftwood path/to/privatekey.pem
