NAME
gnutls-cli - GnuTLS client
SYNOPSIS
gnutls-cli [-flag [value]]... [--opt-name[[=| ]value]]... [hostname] Operands and options may be intermixed. They will be reordered.
DESCRIPTION
Simple client program to set up a TLS connection to some other computer. It sets up a TLS connection and forwards data from the standard input to the secured socket and vice versa.
OPTIONS
-d number, --debug=number Enable debugging.. This option takes an integer number as its argument. The value of number is constrained to being: in the range 0 through 9999 Specifies the debug level. -V, --verbose More verbose output. This option may appear an unlimited number of times. --tofu, --no-tofu Enable trust on first use authentication. The no-tofu form will disable the option. This option will, in addition to certificate authentication, perform authentication based on previously seen public keys, a model similar to SSH authentication. --dane, --no-dane Enable DANE certificate verification (DNSSEC). The no-dane form will disable the option. This option will, in addition to certificate authentication using the trusted CAs, verify the server certificates using on the DANE information available via DNSSEC. --local-dns, --no-local-dns Use the local DNS server for DNSSEC resolving.. The no-local-dns form will disable the option. This option will use the local DNS server for DNSSEC. This is disabled by default due to many servers not allowing DNSSEC. --ca-verification, --no-ca-verification Disable CA certificate verification. The no-ca-verification form will disable the option. This option is enabled by default. This option will disable CA certificate verification. It is to be used with the --dane or --tofu options. --ocsp, --no-ocsp Enable OCSP certificate verification. The no-ocsp form will disable the option. This option will enable verification of the peer's certificate using ocsp -r, --resume Establish a session and resume. Connect, establish a session, reconnect and resume. -b, --heartbeat Activate heartbeat support. -e, --rehandshake Establish a session and rehandshake. Connect, establish a session and rehandshake immediately. --noticket Don't accept session tickets. -s, --starttls Connect, establish a plain session and start TLS.. The TLS session will be initiated when EOF or a SIGALRM is received. -u, --udp Use DTLS (datagram TLS) over UDP. --mtu=number Set MTU for datagram TLS. This option takes an integer number as its argument. The value of number is constrained to being: in the range 0 through 17000 --srtp-profiles=string Offer SRTP profiles. --crlf Send CR LF instead of LF. --x509fmtder Use DER format for certificates to read from. -f, --fingerprint Send the openpgp fingerprint, instead of the key. --disable-extensions Disable all the TLS extensions. This option disables all TLS extensions. Deprecated option. Use the priority string. --print-cert Print peer's certificate in PEM format. --recordsize=number The maximum record size to advertize. This option takes an integer number as its argument. The value of number is constrained to being: in the range 0 through 4096 --dh-bits=number The minimum number of bits allowed for DH. This option takes an integer number as its argument. This option sets the minimum number of bits allowed for a Diffie-Hellman key exchange. You may want to lower the default value if the peer sends a weak prime and you get an connection error with unacceptable prime. --priority=string Priorities string. TLS algorithms and protocols to enable. You can use predefined sets of ciphersuites such as PERFORMANCE, NORMAL, SECURE128, SECURE256. Check the GnuTLS manual on section "Priority strings" for more information on allowed keywords --x509cafile=string Certificate file or PKCS #11 URL to use. --x509crlfile=file CRL file to use. --pgpkeyfile=file PGP Key file to use. --pgpkeyring=file PGP Key ring file to use. --pgpcertfile=file PGP Public Key (certificate) file to use. --x509keyfile=string X.509 key file or PKCS #11 URL to use. --x509certfile=string X.509 Certificate file or PKCS #11 URL to use. --pgpsubkey=string PGP subkey to use (hex or auto). --srpusername=string SRP username to use. --srppasswd=string SRP password to use. --pskusername=string PSK username to use. --pskkey=string PSK key (in hex) to use. -p string, --port=string The port or service to connect to. --insecure Don't abort program if server certificate can't be validated. --ranges Use length-hiding padding to prevent traffic analysis. When possible (e.g., when %NEW_PADDING is specified), use length-hiding padding to prevent traffic analysis. --benchmark-ciphers Benchmark individual ciphers. --benchmark-soft-ciphers Benchmark individual software ciphers (no hw acceleration). --benchmark-tls-kx Benchmark TLS key exchange methods. --benchmark-tls-ciphers Benchmark TLS ciphers. -l, --list Print a list of the supported algorithms and modes. Print a list of the supported algorithms and modes. If a priority string is given then only the enabled ciphersuites are shown. --disable-sni Do not send a Server Name Indication (SNI). -h, --help Display usage information and exit. -!, --more-help Pass the extended usage information through a pager. -v [{v|c|n}], --version[={v|c|n}] Output version of program and exit. The default mode is `v', a simple version. The `c' mode will print copyright information and `n' will print the full copyright notice.
EXAMPLES
Connecting using PSK authentication To connect to a server using PSK authentication, you need to enable the choice of PSK by using a cipher priority parameter such as in the example below. $ ./gnutls-cli -p 5556 localhost --pskusername psk_identity --pskkey 88f3824b3e5659f52d00e959bacab954b6540344 --priority NORMAL:-KX-ALL:+ECDHE-PSK:+DHE-PSK:+PSK Resolving 'localhost'... Connecting to '127.0.0.1:5556'... - PSK authentication. - Version: TLS1.1 - Key Exchange: PSK - Cipher: AES-128-CBC - MAC: SHA1 - Compression: NULL - Handshake was completed - Simple Client Mode: By keeping the --pskusername parameter and removing the --pskkey parameter, it will query only for the password during the handshake. Listing ciphersuites in a priority string To list the ciphersuites in a priority string: $ ./gnutls-cli --priority SECURE192 -l Cipher suites for SECURE192 TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_AES_256_CBC_SHA384 0xc0, 0x24 TLS1.2 TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 0xc0, 0x2e TLS1.2 TLS_ECDHE_RSA_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 0xc0, 0x30 TLS1.2 TLS_DHE_RSA_AES_256_CBC_SHA256 0x00, 0x6b TLS1.2 TLS_DHE_DSS_AES_256_CBC_SHA256 0x00, 0x6a TLS1.2 TLS_RSA_AES_256_CBC_SHA256 0x00, 0x3d TLS1.2 Certificate types: CTYPE-X.509 Protocols: VERS-TLS1.2, VERS-TLS1.1, VERS-TLS1.0, VERS-SSL3.0, VERS-DTLS1.0 Compression: COMP-NULL Elliptic curves: CURVE-SECP384R1, CURVE-SECP521R1 PK-signatures: SIGN-RSA-SHA384, SIGN-ECDSA-SHA384, SIGN-RSA-SHA512, SIGN-ECDSA-SHA512
EXIT STATUS
One of the following exit values will be returned: 0 (EXIT_SUCCESS) Successful program execution. 1 (EXIT_FAILURE) The operation failed or the command syntax was not valid. 70 (EX_SOFTWARE) libopts had an internal operational error. Please report it to autogen-users@lists.sourceforge.net. Thank you.
