Tag Name : keygen
The keygen tag is used to provide a list of data items to select from. These data items are made available in the form of auto-complete feature. The keygen field - keytype attribute can have 'rsa/dsa/ec' values. The example below uses keytype=rsa.
When the form is submitted, you will see a message "key generation in progress.." for a quick second. After the keys are generated, the private key is stored locally, and the public key is sent over to the server as part of form submission.
HTML Example :
<form action="keygen_processor.php" method="post">
Username: <input type="text" name="usr_name">
Encryption: <keygen name="security" keytype='rsa'>
<input type="submit">

Output :
Username: Encryption:
