NAME
certmaster-submit SYNOPSIS
certmaster-submit [-h serverHost] [-c cafile] [-C capath] [csrfile] DESCRIPTION
certmaster-submit is the helper which certmonger uses to make requests to certmaster-based CAs. It is not normally run interactively, but it can be for troubleshooting purposes. The signing request which is to be submitted should either be in a file whose name is given as an argument, or fed into certmaster-submit via stdin. OPTIONS
-h serverHost Submit the request to the certmaster instance running on the named host. The default is localhost:51235 if a file named /var/run/certmaster.pid is found on the local system, and is read from /etc/certmaster/minion.conf if that file is not found. -c cafile Submit the request over HTTPS instead of HTTP, and only trust the server if its certificate was issued by the CA whose certificate is in the named file. -C capath Submit the request over HTTPS instead of HTTP, and only trust the server if its certificate was issued by a CA whose certificate is in a file in the named directory. EXIT STATUS
0 if the certificate was issued. The certificate will be printed. 1 if the CA is still thinking. A cookie 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. FILES
/var/run/certmaster.pid the certmaster service's PID file. Its presence is taken to indicate that this system is a CA, and that requests should be submit- ted to a certmaster server running on the local system. /etc/certmaster/minion.conf the certmaster minion configuration file. If there is no indication that the local system is a certmaster server, then this file is consulted to determine the location of the certmaster server. KNOWN BUGS
Checking for the existence of certmaster's PID file is a terrible way to figure out whether we're a minion or not. BUGS

NAME
getcert SYNOPSIS
getcert start-tracking [options] DESCRIPTION
Tells certmonger to monitor an already-issued certificate. Optionally, when the certificate nears expiration, 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. SPECIFYING EXISTING REQUESTS
-i NAME Modify the request which has this nickname. If this option is not specified, and a tracking entry which matches the key and cer- tificate storage options which are specified already exists, that entry will be modified. Otherwise, a new tracking entry will be added. KEY AND CERTIFICATE STORAGE OPTIONS
-d DIR Use an NSS database in the specified directory for reading this certificate and, if possible, the corresponding key. -n NAME Use the certificate with this nickname, and if a private key with the same nickname or which corresponds to the certificate is available, to use it, too. Only valid with -d. -t TOKEN If the NSS database has more than one token available, use the token with this name for accessing the certificate and key. This argument only rarely needs to be specified. Only valid with -d. -f FILE Read the certificate from 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 a signing request for refreshing the certificate. If no such file is found when needed, generate a new key pair and store them in the file. Only valid with -f. KEY ENCRYPTION OPTIONS
-p FILE The private key files or databases are encrypted using the PIN stored in the named file as the passphrase. -P PIN The private key files or databases are encrypted using the specified PIN as the passphrase. Because command-line arguments to run- ning processes are trivially discoverable, use of this option is not recommended except for testing. TRACKING OPTIONS
-I NAME Assign the specified nickname to this task. If this option is not specified, a name will be assigned automatically. -r Attempt to obtain a new certificate from the CA when the expiration date of a certificate 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. 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. Only useful in combination with -r. SIGNING REQUEST OPTIONS
If and when certmonger attempts to obtain a new certificate to replace the one being monitored, the values to be added to the signing request will be taken from the current certificate, unless preferred values are set using one or more of -U, -K, -E, and -D. -U EKU Add an extensionRequest for the specified extendedKeyUsage to the signing request. The EKU value is expected to be an object iden- tifier (OID). -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 cer- tificate. -C command When ever the certificate is saved to the specified location, run the specified command as the client user after saving the certifi- cate. -v Be verbose about errors. Normally, the details of an error received from the daemon will be suppressed if the client can make a diagnostic suggestion. BUGS
