Synopsis

dogtag-ipa-renew-agent-submit -E EE-URL -A AGENT-URL [-d dbdir] [-n nickname] [-i cainfo] [-C capath] [-c certfile] [-k keyfile] [-p pinfile] [-P pin] [-s serial (hex)] [-D serial (decimal)] [-S state] [-T profile] [-O param=value] [-N | -R] [-t] [-o option=value] [-a] [-u uid] [-U udn] [-W pwd] [-w pwdfile] [-Y pin] [-y pinfile] [csrfile]

Description

dogtag-ipa-renew-agent-submit is the helper which certmonger uses to make certificate renewal requests to Dogtag instances running on IPA servers.  It is not normally run interactively, but it can be for troubleshooting purposes.

The preferred option is to request a renewal of an already-issued certificate, using its serial number, which can be read from a PEM-formatted certificate provided in the CERTMONGER_CERTIFICATE environment variable, or via the -s or -D option on the command line.  If no serial number is provided, then the client will attempt to obtain a new certificate by submitting a signing request to the CA.

The signing request which is to be submitted should either be in a file whose name is given as an argument, or fed into dogtag-ipa-renew-agent-submit via stdin.

certmonger does not yet support retrieving trust information from Dogtag CAs.

Options

-E EE-URL, --ee-url=EE-URL

The top-level URL for the end-entity interface provided by the CA.  In IPA installations, this is typically http://SERVER:EEPORT/ca/ee/ca. If no URL is specified, the host named in the [global] section in the /etc/ipa/default.conf file is used as the value of SERVER, and the value of EEPORT will be inferred based on the value of the dogtag_version in the [global] section in the /etc/ipa/default.conf file: if dogtag_version is set to 10 or more, EEPORT will be set to 8080.  Otherwise it will be 9180.

-A AGENT-URL, --agent-url=AGENT-URL

The top-level URL for the agent interface provided by the CA.  In IPA installations, this is typically https://SERVER:AGENTPORT/ca/agent/ca. If no URL is specified, the host named in the [global] section in the /etc/ipa/default.conf file is used as the value of SERVER, and the value of AGENTPORT will be inferred based on the value of the dogtag_version in the [global] section in the /etc/ipa/default.conf file: if dogtag_version is set to 10 or more, AGENTPORT will be set to 8443.  Otherwise it will be 9443.

-i FILE, --cafile=PATH

The location of a file containing a copy of the CA's certificate, against which the CA server's certificate will be verified. The default is /etc/ipa/ca.crt.

-C DIR, --capath=DIR

The location of a directory containing a copy of the CA's certificate, against which the CA server's certificate will be verified.

-s NUMBER, --hex-serial=NUMBER

The serial number of an already-issued certificate for which the client should attempt to obtain a new certificate, in hexidecimal form, if one can not be read from the CERTMONGER_CERTIFICATE environment variable.

-D NUMBER, --serial=NUMBER

The serial number of an already-issued certificate for which the client should attempt to obtain a new certificate, in decimal form, if one can not be read from the CERTMONGER_CERTIFICATE environment variable.

-S STATE-VALUE, --state=STATE-VALUE

A cookie value provided by a previous instance of this helper, if the helper is being asked to continue a multi-step enrollment process.  If the CERTMONGER_COOKIE environment variable is set, its value is used.

-T NAME, --profile=NAME

The name of the type of certificate which the client should request from the CA if it is not renewing a certificate (per the -s option above).  If the CERTMONGER_CA_PROFILE environment variable is set, its value is used. Otherwise, the default value is caServerCert.

-t, --profile-list

Instead of attempting to obtain a new certificate, query the server for a list of the enabled enrollment profiles.

-O param=value, --approval-option=param=value

An additional parameter to pass to the server when approving the signing request using the agent's credentials.  By default, any server-supplied default settings are applied.  This option can be used either to override a server-supplied default setting, or to supply one which would otherwise have not been used.

-N, --force-new

Even if an already-issued certificate is available in the CERTMONGER_CERTIFICATE environment variable, or a serial number has been provided, don't attempt to renew a certificate using its serial number. Instead, attempt to obtain a new certificate using the signing request. The default behavior is to request a renewal if possible.

-R, --force-renew

Negates the effect of the -N flag.

-o param=value, --submit-option=param=value

When initially submitting a request to the CA, add the specified parameter and value along with any request parameters which would otherwise be sent.  This option is not typically used.

-a, --agent-submit

Use agent credentials, specified using some combination of the -d, -n, -c, and -k flags, to authenticate to the CA when initially submitting a request to the CA or retrieving the list of enabled enrollment profiles. This is typically required when the enrollment profile being used uses AgentCertAuth-based authentication, and requires that the URL specified using the -E flag be an HTTPS URL, or when the URL specified using the -E flag is an HTTPS URL.

-u username, --uid=username

When initially submitting a request to the CA, supply the specified value as a user name. This is typically required when the enrollment profile being used uses UidPwdDirAuth-based or NISAuth-based authentication..TP -U userdn, --upn=userdn When initially submitting a request to the CA, supply the specified value as the DN (distinguished name) of the user's entry in a directory server which the CA is configured to use for checking the user's password. This is typically required when the enrollment profile being used uses UdnPwdDirAuth-based authentication.

-W PASSWORD, --userpwd=PASSWORD

When initially submitting a request to the CA, supply the specified value as the password for the user whose name is specified with the -u option, or whose DN is specified with the -U option. This is typically only required when the enrollment profile being used uses UidPwdDirAuth-based, UserPwdDirAuth-based, or NISAuth-based authentication. If the URL specified using the -E flag is not an HTTPS URL, this value will not be encrypted.

-w FILE, --userpwdfile=FILE

When initially submitting a request to the CA, read from the specified file a password to supply for the user whose name is specified with the -u option, or whose DN is specified with the -U option. This is typically only required when the enrollment profile being used uses UidPwdDirAuth-based, UserPwdDirAuth-based, or NISAuth-based authentication. If the URL specified using the -E flag is not an HTTPS URL, this value will not be encrypted.

-Y PIN, --userpin=PIN

When initially submitting a request to the CA, supply the specified value as the PIN for the user whose name is specified with the -u option, or whose DN is specified with the -U option. This is typically only required when the enrollment profile being used uses UidPwdPinDirAuth-based authentication. If the URL specified using the -E flag is not an HTTPS URL, this value will not be encrypted. -y FILE, --userpinfile=FILE When initially submitting a request to the CA, read from the specified file a PIN to supply for the user whose name is specified with the -u option, or whose DN is specified with the -U option. This is typically only required when the enrollment profile being used uses UidPwdPinDirAuth-based authentication.  If the URL specified using the -E flag is not an HTTPS URL, this value will not be encrypted.

-v, --verbose

Increases the logging level.  Use twice for more logging.  This option is mainly useful for troubleshooting.

Agent Key and Certificate Options

Options that provide the location for the private key and public certificate which the client should use to authenticate to the CA's agent interface. The values to use depend on which cryptography library your copy of libcurl was linked with.

If none of these options are specified, and none of the -p, -P, -i, nor -C options are specified, then this set of defaults is used:

-i /etc/ipa/ca.crt
-d /etc/httpd/alias
-n ipaCert
-p /etc/httpd/alias/pwdfile.txt

-d dbdir, --dbdir=dbdir

Use an NSS database in the specified directory for this certificate and key. Only valid with -n.

-n NAME, --nickname=NAME

Use the NSS key with this nickname. Only valid with -d.

-c FILE, --certfile=FILE

The PEM file that contains the public certificate. Only valid with -k.

-k FILE, --keyfile=FILE

The PEM file that contains the private certificate. Only valid with -c.

-p FILE, --sslpinfile=FILE

The name of a file which contains a PIN/password which will be needed in order to make use of the agent credentials.

-P PIN, --sslpin=PIN

The name of a file which contains a PIN/password which will be needed in order to make use of the agent credentials.

Exit Status

0

if the certificate was issued. The certificate will be printed.

1

if the CA is still thinking.  A cookie (state) value will be printed.

2

if the CA rejected the request.  An error message may be printed.

3

if the CA was unreachable.  An error message may be printed.

4

if critical configuration information is missing.  An error message may be printed.

5

if the CA is still thinking.  A suggested poll delay (specified in seconds) and a cookie (state) value will be printed.

17

if the CA indicates that the client needs to attempt enrollment using a new key pair.

Files

/etc/ipa/default.conf

is the IPA client configuration file.  This file is consulted to determine the URL for the Dogtag server's end-entity and agent interfaces if they are not supplied as arguments.
