NAME
       getcert

SYNOPSIS
       getcert request [options]

DESCRIPTION
       Tells  certmonger  to  use  an existing key pair (or to generate one if one is not already
       found in the specified location), to generate a signing request using the key pair, and to
       submit them for signing to a CA.

KEY AND CERTIFICATE STORAGE OPTIONS
       -d DIR Use  an  NSS  database  in the specified directory for storing this certificate and
	      key.

       -n NAME
	      Use the key with this nickname to generate the signing request.  If no such key  is
	      found, generate one.  Give the enrolled certificate this nickname, too.  Only valid
	      with -d.

       -t TOKEN
	      If the NSS database has more than one token available, use the token with this name
	      for storing and accessing the certificate and key.  This argument only rarely needs
	      to be specified.	Only valid with -d.

       -f FILE
	      Store the issued certificate in this file.  For safety's sake, do not use the  same
	      file specified with the -k option.

       -k FILE
	      Use  the	key stored in this file to generate the signing request.  If no such file
	      is found, generate a new key pair and store them in the file.  Only valid with -f.


KEY ENCRYPTION OPTIONS
       -p FILE
	      Encrypt private key files or databases using the PIN stored in the  named  file  as
	      the passphrase.

       -P PIN Encrypt  private	key files or databases using the specified PIN as the passphrase.
	      Because command-line arguments to running processes are trivially discoverable, use
	      of this option is not recommended except for testing.

KEY GENERATION OPTIONS
       -g BITS
	      In case a new key pair needs to be generated, this option specifies the size of the
	      key.  If not specified, a reasonable default (currently 2048 bits) will be used.

TRACKING OPTIONS
       -r     Attempt to obtain a new certificate from the CA when the expiration date of a  cer-
	      tificate nears.  This is the default setting.

       -R     Don't attempt to obtain a new certificate from the CA when the expiration date of a
	      certificate nears.  If this option is specified, an expired certificate will simply
	      stay expired.

       -I NAME
	      Assign  the  specified  nickname	to this task.  If this option is not specified, a
	      name will be assigned automatically.

ENROLLMENT OPTIONS
       -c NAME
	      Enroll with the specified CA rather than a possible default.  The name  of  the  CA
	      should correspond to one listed by getcert list-cas.

       -T NAME
	      Request  a  certificate  using  the  named profile, template, or certtype, from the
	      specified CA.

SIGNING REQUEST OPTIONS
       If none of -N, -U, -K, -E, and -D are specified, a default group of settings will be  used
       to  request an SSL server certificate for the current host, with the host Kerberos service
       as an additional name.

       -N NAME
	      Set the subject name to include in  the  signing	request.   The	default  used  is
	      CN=hostname, where hostname is the local hostname.

       -u keyUsage
	      Add  an  extensionRequest  for  the specified keyUsage to the signing request.  The
	      keyUsage value is expected to be one of these names:

	      digitalSignature

	      nonRepudiation

	      keyEncipherment

	      dataEncipherment

	      keyAgreement

	      keyCertSign

	      cRLSign

	      encipherOnly

	      decipherOnly

       -U EKU Add an extensionRequest for the specified extendedKeyUsage to the signing  request.
	      The EKU value is expected to be an object identifier (OID), but some specific names
	      are also recognized.  These are some names and their associated OID values:

	      id-kp-serverAuth 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.1

	      id-kp-clientAuth 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.2

	      id-kp-codeSigning 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.3

	      id-kp-emailProtection 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.4

	      id-kp-timeStamping 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.8

	      id-kp-OCSPSigning 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.9

	      id-pkinit-KPClientAuth 1.3.6.1.5.2.3.4

	      id-pkinit-KPKdc 1.3.6.1.5.2.3.5

	      id-ms-kp-sc-logon 1.3.6.1.4.1.311.20.2.2

       -K NAME
	      Add an extensionRequest for a subjectAltName, with the specified Kerberos principal
	      name as its value, to the signing request.

       -E EMAIL
	      Add  an  extensionRequest for a subjectAltName, with the specified email address as
	      its value, to the signing request.

       -D DNSNAME
	      Add an extensionRequest for a subjectAltName, with the specified DNS  name  as  its
	      value, to the signing request.

OTHER OPTIONS
       -B command
	      When  ever  the  certificate  is saved to the specified location, run the specified
	      command as the client user before saving the certificate.

       -C command
	      When ever the certificate is saved to the specified  location,  run  the	specified
	      command as the client user after saving the certificate.

       -v     Be  verbose about errors.  Normally, the details of an error received from the dae-
	      mon will be suppressed if the client can make a diagnostic suggestion.
