NAME
       make-ssl-cert - Debconf wrapper for openssl

SYNOPSIS
       make-ssl-cert template output-certificate [--force-overwrite]
       make-ssl-cert generate-default-snakeoil [--force-overwrite]

DESCRIPTION
       make-ssl-cert  is  a simple debconf to openssl wrapper to create self-signed certificates.
       It requires a source template (Ex: /usr/share/ssl-cert/ssleay.cnf) and it will  place  the
       new generated certificate in the specified output file.
       Invoked	 with  "generate-default-snakeoil",  it  will  generate  /etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-
       snakeoil.pem and /etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key.

OPTIONS
       A summary of options are included below.

       --force-overwrite
	      Use this option ONLY when strictly required since it will overwrite the output cer-
	      tificate.
