Operations

To view available profile commands, type pki pkcs12-cert. To view each command's usage, type pki pkcs12-cert-lt;commandgt; --help.

All pki pkcs12-cert commands require a PKCS #12 file and its password. The PKCS #12 file can be specified with the --pkcs12-file parameter. The password can be specified either directly with the --pkcs12-password parameter, or in a file with the --pkcs12-password-file parameter.

Some pki pkcs12-cert commands require an NSS database and its password. The NSS database location can be specified with the -d parameter (default: ~/.dogtag/nssdb). The NSS database password can be specified with the -c or the -C parameter.

Viewing certificates in a PKCS #12 file

To list the certificates in a PKCS #12 file:

$ pki pkcs12-cert-find <PKCS #12 file> <PKCS #12 password>

Exporting a certificate from a PKCS #12 file

To export a certificate from a PKCS #12 file into a file in PEM format:

$ pki pkcs12-cert-export <nickname> <PKCS #12 file> <PKCS #12 password> <cert file>

The certificate file can be specified with the --cert-file parameter.

Importing a certificate into a PKCS #12 file

To import a certificate including its key and trust flags from an NSS database into a PKCS #12 file:

$ pki <NSS database location> <NSS database password> pkcs12-cert-import <nickname> \
    <PKCS #12 file> <PKCS #12 password>

If the PKCS #12 file does not exist, it will be created automatically. If the PKCS #12 file already exists, the certificate will be added into the file.

The trust flags can be overwritten with the --trust-flags parameter. If the key is not needed, specify the --no-key parameter.

Modifying a certificate in a PKCS #12 file

To modify the trust flags of a certificate in a PKCS #12 file:

$ pki pkcs12-cert-mod <nickname> <PKCS #12 file> <PKCS #12 password> <trust flags>

The trust flags can be specified with the --trust-flags parameter.

Deleting a certificate from a PKCS #12 file

To delete a certificate and its key from a PKCS #12 file:

$ pki pkcs12-cert-del <nickname> <PKCS #12 file> <PKCS #12 password>
