NAME
p11tool - GnuTLS PKCS #11 tool
SYNOPSIS
p11tool [-flag [value]]... [--opt-name[[=| ]value]]... [url] Operands and options may be intermixed. They will be reordered.
DESCRIPTION
Program that allows handling data from PKCS #11 smart cards and security modules. To use PKCS #11 tokens with gnutls the configuration file /etc/gnutls/pkcs11.conf has to exist and contain a number of lines of the form 'load=/usr/lib/opensc-pkcs11.so'. Alternatively the p11-kit configuration files have to be setup. To provide the PIN for all the operations below use the environment variable GNUTLS_PIN.
OPTIONS
-d number, --debug=number Enable debugging.. This option takes an integer number as its argument. The value of number is con- strained to being: in the range 0 through 9999 Specifies the debug level. --outfile=string Output file. --list-tokens List all available tokens. --export Export the object specified by the URL. --list-mechanisms List all available mechanisms in a token. --list-all List all available objects in a token. --list-all-certs List all available certificates in a token. --list-certs List all certificates that have an associated private key. --list-all-privkeys List all available private keys in a token. --list-all-trusted List all available certificates marked as trusted. --initialize Initializes a PKCS #11 token. --write Writes the loaded objects to a PKCS #11 token. It can be used to write private keys, certificates or secret keys to a token. --delete Deletes the objects matching the PKCS #11 URL. --generate-rsa Generate an RSA private-public key pair. Generates an RSA private-public key pair on the specified token. --generate-dsa Generate an RSA private-public key pair. Generates an RSA private-public key pair on the specified token. --generate-ecc Generate an RSA private-public key pair. Generates an RSA private-public key pair on the specified token. --label=string Sets a label for the write operation. --trusted, --no-trusted Marks the object to be written as trusted. The no-trusted form will disable the option. --private, --no-private Marks the object to be written as private. The no-private form will disable the option. This option is enabled by default. The written object will require a PIN to be used. --login, --no-login Force login to token. The no-login form will disable the option. --detailed-url, --no-detailed-url Print detailed URLs. The no-detailed-url form will disable the option. --secret-key=string Provide a hex encoded secret key. --load-privkey=file Private key file to use. --load-pubkey=file Public key file to use. --load-certificate=file Certificate file to use. -8, --pkcs8 Use PKCS #8 format for private keys. --bits=number Specify the number of bits for key generate. This option takes an integer number as its argument. --sec-param=security parameter Specify the security level. This is alternative to the bits option. Available options are [low, legacy, normal, high, ultra]. --inder, --no-inder Use DER/RAW format for input. The no-inder form will disable the option. Use DER/RAW format for input certificates and private keys. --inraw This is an alias for the --inder option. --provider=file Specify the PKCS #11 provider library. This will override the default options in /etc/gnutls/pkcs11.conf -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
To view all tokens in your system use: $ p11tool --list-tokens To view all objects in a token use: $ p11tool --login --list-all "pkcs11:TOKEN-URL" To store a private key and a certificate in a token run: $ p11tool --login --write "pkcs11:URL" --load-privkey key.pem --label "Mykey" $ p11tool --login --write "pkcs11:URL" --load-certificate cert.pem --label "Mykey" Note that some tokens require the same label to be used for the certificate and its corresponding private key. To generate an RSA private key inside the token use: $ p11tool --login --generate-rsa --bits 1024 --label "MyNewKey" --outfile MyNewKey.pub "pkcs11:TOKEN-URL" The bits parameter in the above example is explicitly set because some tokens only support a limited number of bits. The output file is the corresponding public key. This key can be used to general a certificate request with certtool. certtool --generate-request --load-privkey "pkcs11:KEY-URL" --load-pubkey MyNewKey.pub --outfile request.pem
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.
