PRE-CONFIGURATION

Configuration files

serial.csv
serial
test1
test2
test3

config.ini

Create default folder
  • May require sudo
  • Default folder => $HOME/Documents/CertGenerator/
  • copy default csv file to $HOME/Documents/CertGenerator/csv/serial.csv
  • copy yaml file to $HOME/Documents/CertGenerator/csr.yaml
$ sudo cert init
To change default folder or default csv:
  • May require sudo
$ sudo cert init -cert [path/of/folder] -csv [path/of/csv/file]

or

$ sudo cert config edit -cert [path/of/folder] -csv [path/of/csv/file]
To edit yaml file:
  • Enter the desired subject
  • Enter “-” to keep empty
  • If you want to create multiple csr using serial.csv, don’t use Commmon Name => just enter “-” to keep empty
  • Note: You always have old csr.yaml in folder under format csr.yam_[date od modification]
$ cert config edit-yaml

CONFIGURATION

Create csr

Create one csr

  • Use -c if you want to use csr.yaml to create csr
  • Use -f to overwrite existing csr
  • The key and csr files will be created in {folder}/certificate/csr/
  • Example: With the command below it will create
    • {folder}/certificate/csr/test/test.csr
    • {folder}/certificate/csr/test/test.key
$ cert create test -c [-f]

Create multiple csr

  • Use -c if you want to use csv file and csr.yaml
  • Use -f to overwrite existing csr
* cert create-multiple -c [-f]

Create p12

Create one p12

  • You need pem file and key file:
  • Use -f to overwrite existing p12
$ cert create-p12 test.p12 [-f] --pem [path/of/pem file] --key [path/of/key file] -pass [password(default:3z6F2Xfc)]

Create multiple p12

  • for creating multiple p12: pem file, key file and p12 must have the same name
  • Use -f to overwrite existing p12
  • Example if you create test1.p12 test2.P12 …:
    • In the csv file, you must have test1 test2 …
    • The pem files must be test1.pem test2.pem …
    • The key files must be test1.key test2.key …
    • It will search key files in folder/certificate/csr/
$ cert create-multiple-p12 -c [-f] --pem-folder [path/of/pem folder]

If you want to use an other folder to search key files, add –key-folder:

$ cert create-multiple-p12 -c [-f] --pem-folder [path/of/pem folder] --key-folder [path/of/key folder]
