Usage with Step CA

INSTALLATION_PATHS=$(scapy get step all -p)
scapy gen passwords
scapy gen worker

export CA_NAME="Scapy CA"
export CA_DNS="$(hostname).local,localhost"
step ca init \
--name "$CA_NAME" \
--deployment-type standalone \
--dns "$CA_DNS" \
--address ":443" \
--provisioner admin \
--password-file $(scapy path password root) \
--provisioner-password-file $(scapy path password provisioner)

step crypto change-pass $(scapy path key intermediate) -f \
--password-file $(scapy path password root) \
--new-password-file $(scapy path password intermediate)

export FINGERPRINT=$(step certificate fingerprint $(scapy path cert root))
scapy deploy --worker scapy --js worker.js

sudo setcap CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE=+eip $(which step-ca)
step-ca $(scapy path config ca) --password-file $(scapy path password intermediate)

In the above commands,

  • Generate a password and store in step path
  • Generate a basic worker file
  • Export CA_NAME variable with CA Name
  • Generate PKI using Step CA
