Verifier is created using govpn-verifier utility.

$ govpn-verifier
Passphrase:[hello world]

First line is the verifier for the server side. Second line is for the client – it lacks generated public key. However you can use server’s one on the client side too.

You can check passphrase against verifier by specifying -verifier option with the path to verifier file:

$ govpn-verifier -verifier '$balloon...'
Passphrase:[hello world]

Optionally you can store plaintext passphrases on volatile memory (memory disk, encrypted filesystem with restrictive permissions to the file) and provide -key option.
