voms-proxy-fake — create a proxy with VOMS extensions

Synopsis

voms-proxy-fake [options]

Description

The voms-proxy-fake generates a proxy containing arbitrary attributes without contacting the VOMS server.

Options

Options may be specified indifferently with either a "-" or "--" prefix.

-help
Displays usage.
-version
Displays version.
-debug
Enables extra debug output.
-q
Quiet mode, minimal output.
-verify
Verifies certificate to make proxy for.
-pwstdin
Allows passphrase from stdin.
-limited
Creates a limited proxy.
-hours H
Proxy is valid for H hours (default:12).
-vomslife H
Tries to get an AC with information valid for H hours. The default is "as long as the proxy certificate". The special value 0 means as long as the server will allow.
-bits B
Number of bits in key {0|512|1024|2048|4096}. 0 is a special value which means: same number of bits as in the issuing certificate.
-cert certfile
Non-standard location of user certificate
-key keyfile
Non-standard location of user key
-certdir certdir
Location of trusted certificates dir
-out proxyfile
Location of new proxy cert
-voms voms[:command]
Specifies the fake VOMS server that will appear in the attribute certificate. command is ignored and is present for compatibility with voms-proxy-init.
-include file
Includes file in the certificate (in a non critical extension)
-conf file
Read options from file.
-policy
The file containing the policy expression.
-policy-language pl
The language in which the policy is expressed. Default is IMPERSONATION_PROXY.
-path-length
Maximum depth of proxy certfificate that can be signed from this.
-globus version
Underlying Globus version.
-proxyver
Version of the proxy certificate to create. May be 2 or 3. Default value is decided upon underlying globus version.
-separate file
Saves the voms credential on file file.
-hostcert file
The cert that will be used to sign the AC.
-hostkey file
The key thet will be used to sign the AC.
-fqan file
The string that will be included in the AC as the granted FQAN.
-newformat
This forces the server to generate ACs in the new (correct) format. This is meant as a compatibility feature to ease migration while the servers upgrade to the new version.
-newsubject newdn
The created proxy will have newdn as subject rather than what is would normally have depending on the specific version of proxy created. Non-printable characters may be specified via the '\XX' encoding, where XX are two hexadecimal characters.
-newissuer newdn
The created proxy will have newdn as issuer rather than what is would normally have depending on the specific version of proxy created. Non-printable characters may be specified via the '\XX' encoding, where XX are two hexadecimal characters.
-newserial newserial
The created proxy will have the newserial as its serial number. The new serial number will have to be specified as an hex representation. Any length is possible. If this option is not specified, voms-proxy-fake will choose the serial number.
-pastac timespec
The created AC will have its validity start in the past, as specified by timespec.

The format of timespec is one of: seconds, hours:minutes, hours:minutes:seconds

-pastproxy timespec
The created proxy will have its validity start in the past as specified by timespec

The format of timespec is one of: seconds, hours:minutes, hours:minutes:seconds

-nscert bit,...,bit
The created proxy will have the specified bits in the Netscape Certificate Extension. Acceptable values for bit are: client, server, email, objsign, sslCA, emailCA, objCA. The default value is not to have this extension.
-extkeyusage bit,...,bit
The created proxy will have the specified bits in the Extended Key Usage Extension. Acceptable values for bit are: serverAuth, clientAuth, codeSigning, emailProtection, timeStamping, msCodeInd, msCodeCom, msCTLSign, msSGC, msEFS, nsSGC, deltaCRL. The default value is not to have this extensions.
-keyusage bit,...,bit
The created proxy will have the specified bits in the Key Usage Extensions. Acceptable values for bit are: digitalSignature, nonRepudiation, keyEncipherment, dataEncipherment, keyAgreement, keyCertSign, cRLSign, encipherOnly, decipherOnly. The default value is to copy this extensions from the issuer certificate while removing the keyCertSign and nonRepudiation bits if present.
-selfsigned
The created certificate will be a self-signed certificate and have a CA=true bit in the Basic constraints Exception.
-extension oid[/criticality]value
This option allows to specified additional extensions to be put in the created certificate.

oid is the Object Identifier of the extensions. Any OID may be used even if it is not already known in advance. This must always be specified. There is no default.

criticality specifies whether the extensions is critical or not, and it must be either true or false. If absent, it defaults to false.

value is the value of the extensions. It is composed by two subfields, type and content. type is a single charater, and specifies how the content is interpreted. ':' means that content is a text string to be included as is. '~' means that content is an hex representation of the string. '+' means that content is the name of a file which will contain the actual data.

-acextension oid[/criticality]value
This option allows to specified additional extensions to be put in the created attribute certificate.

-ga id = value [(qualifier)]
This option adds the generic attribute specified to the AC generated. Please note that spaces before and after the '=' char are swallowed in the command line.
-voinfo file
The file file contains informations for additional ACs that should be included in the created proxy. ACs specified via the -voinfo option shall be added before ACs specified via the command line options.

The format of the file is the following:

[voname]

parameter=value

parameter=value
