        openca-ocspd ā€” OCSP Daemon

Synopsis

openca-ocspd [-d] [-p n] [-b address] [-c file] [-md digest] [-k passwd] [-i passin] [-e engine] [-r chroot_dir] [-v]

Description

The openca-ocspd is an RFC2560 compliant OCSPD responder. It can be used to verify the status of a certificate using OCSP clients (such as Mozilla/Netscape7).

Options

-d

detach the main process from the calling process.

-p n

specifies the port to bind to. Default is 2560.

-b address

specifies the IP address to bind to. Default behaviour is to listen to every IP available (equal to '*' value).

-c file

specifies the configuration file to be loaded. Default file loaded is /usr/local/etc/ocspd.conf.

-md digest

specifies the digest to be used when generating responses. Default is sha1.

-k passwd

specifies the password to be used when loading the private key.

-i passin

the key password source. For more information about the format of arg see the PASS PHRASE ARGUMENTS section in openssl(1).

-engine id

specifying an engine (by it's unique id string) will cause the responder to attempt to obtain a functional reference to the specified engine, thus initialising it if needed. The engine will then be set as the default for all available algorithms.

-r chroot_dir

Chroot the application into the specified directory.

-v

this prints extra details about the operations being performed.

Notes

Actually not extensive testing has been carried out, anyway this daemon is reported to work with Mozilla/Netscape.

To reload the certificate's db simply send a SIGHUP to the main process ( kill -s SIGHUP pid ).

Example

        openca-ocspd -c contrib/ocspd.conf
