Basically the parity version of this.

Can Parity import raw private keys or Geth keystore files?

I seem to remember just copying them into .local/share/io...../keys. The keys I had were generated on myetherwallet though, not geth. Or depending on how you installed, it might be ~/.parity/keys.

I think there is also an "import" function in the Parity UI that is accessible at port 8180. So open a browser to on a computer that is running Parity.)


In addition to stone.212's answer, here is another way:

Simply follow the instructions to import a private key into Geth, and then copy your keystore file into Parity's keys folder.


There is also a command-line option:

parity account import [path to geth keystore file]
