Description

The pki-user-cert commands provide command-line interfaces to manage user certificates on the specified subsystem.

Valid subsystems are ca, kra, ocsp, tks, and tps. If the <subsystem>- prefix is omitted, it will default to ca.

pki [CLI options] <subsystem>-user-cert

This command is to list available user certificate commands for the subsystem.

pki [CLI options] <subsystem>-user-cert-find <user ID> [command options]

This command is to list certificates owned by the subsystem user.

pki [CLI options] <subsystem>-user-cert-show <user ID> <cert ID> [command options]

This command is to view the details of a certificate owned to the subsystem user.

pki [CLI options] <subsystem>-user-cert-add <user ID> [command options]

This command is to add a certificate to the subsystem user.

pki [CLI options] <subsystem>-user-cert-del <user ID> <cert ID> [command options]

This command is to delete a certificate from the subsystem user.

Options

The CLI options are described in pki(1).

Operations

To view available user certificate commands, type pki <subsystem>-user-cert. To view each command's usage, type pki <subsystem>-user-cert-<command> --help.

All user certificate commands must be executed as the subsystem administrator.

For example, to list certificates owned by a CA user execute the following command:

pki <CA admin authentication> ca-user-cert-find testuser

The results can be paged by specifying the (0-based) index of the first entry to return and the maximum number of entries returned:

pki <CA admin authentication> ca-user-cert-find testuser --start 20 --size 10

The above command will return entries #20 to #29.

To view a certificate owned by a CA user, specify the user ID and the certificate ID in the following command:

pki <CA admin authentication> ca-user-cert-show testuser “2;11;CN=CA Signing Certificate,O=EXAMPLE;UID=testuser”

To add a certificate to a CA user from a file, specify the user ID and the input file:

pki <CA admin authentication> ca-user-cert-add testuser --input testuser.crt

To add a certificate to a CA user from the certificate repository, specify the user ID and the serial number:

pki <CA admin authentication> ca-user-cert-add testuser --serial 0x80

To delete a certificate from a CA user, specify the user ID and the certificate ID in the following command:

pki <CA admin authentication> ca-user-cert-del testuser “2;11;CN=CA Signing Certificate,O=EXAMPLE;UID=testuser”
