Certificate management for eurephia


Available modes for the certificate command are:

-A | --add

Register a new certificate

-D | --delete

Delete a registered certificate

-l | --list

List all registered certificates

-h | --help <mode>
Help about a specific mode

List Mode

The list mode will list all registered certificates.  It accepts one parameter:

-S | --sort <sort key>

Decide the sort order of the certificate list

Available sort keys are:

Numeric certificate ID

Certificate depth

Certificate SHA1 digest

Certificate Common Name field

Certificate organisation field

Certificate e-mail address field

When the certificate was registered in eurephia.

Add Mode

The add mode will register a new certificate.

-d | --depth

Certificate depth, required.

-D | --digest

SHA1 fingerprint/digest of the new certificate

-C | --common-name

Common name (CN) field of the certificate

-O | --organisation

Organisation (O) field of the certificate

-E | --email

e-mail address (emailAddress) of the certificate

Usually the certificate depth value needs to be 0, if you are registering user account certificates. CA certificates usually have a value bigger than 0.

If you have the certificate file available, you can use the following options to retrieve the needed information directly from a certificate file.

-f | --certfile

File name of the certificate file.

-p | --pkcs12

If the file is in PKCS#12 format.

The default format is PEM format, unless --pkcs12 is given.  These two options cannot be used together with -D, -C, -O or -E.  But the certificate depth must be given to indicate the certificate depth.

Delete Mode

The delete mode will remove a certificate from the certificate database.

-i | --certid

Indicates a unique certificate ID

-d | --digest

A unique SHA1 fingerprint/digest value

-C | --common-name

Common Name (CN) field of a certificate

-O | --organisation

Organisation (O) field of a certificate

-E | --email

e-mail address (emailAddress) of a certificate

You can use any of these parameters to indicate a search criteria for the certificate (or certificates) you want to delete.  You will be provided with a list over certificates which matches your search criteria and you will need to approve the deletion of the matching certificate(s).
