The <keygen> tag in HTML is used to specify a key-pair generator field in a form. The purpose of this element is to provide a secure way to authenticate users. When a form is submitted then two keys are generated, private key and public key. The private key is stored locally, and the public key is sent to the server. The public key is used to generate a client certificate to authenticate the user for the future.

Syntax

<keygen name = "anyname">
