I have some eth keys that I would like to convert to geth keys. There was a previous post about this, however the solution provided was to use ethkey, but this tool has now been deprecated. Any help would be appreciated.

1 Answer 1


The tool was deprecated because:

We retired the ethkey command and files are now compatible, no need to stick to a certain file naming scheme. I think we are fine here. Key management is not something we highly support, it should be moved out of the node's domain anyway.

So it should just work. (If it doesn't, then it might be worth commenting on the relevant GitHub issues page in the above link.)
