SYNOPSIS

openssl crl [-help] [-inform DER|PEM] [-outform DER|PEM] [-key filename] [-keyform DER|PEM|P12] [-text] [-in filename] [-out filename] [-gendelta filename] [-badsig] [-verify] [-noout] [-hash] [-hash_old] [-fingerprint] [-crlnumber] [-issuer] [-lastupdate] [-nextupdate] [-nameopt option] [-CAfile file] [-no-CAfile] [-CApath dir] [-no-CApath] [-CAstore uri] [-no-CAstore] [-provider name] [-provider-path path] [-propquery propq]

DESCRIPTION

This command processes CRL files in DER or PEM format.

OPTIONS

-help
Print out a usage message.
-inform DER|PEM
The CRL input format; unspecified by default. See openssl-format-options(1) for details.
-outform DER|PEM
The CRL output format; the default is PEM. See openssl-format-options(1) for details.
-key filename
The private key to be used to sign the CRL.
-keyform DER|PEM|P12
The format of the private key file; unspecified by default. See openssl-format-options(1) for details.
-in filename
This specifies the input filename to read from or standard input if this option is not specified.
-out filename
Specifies the output filename to write to or standard output by default.
-gendelta filename
Output a comparison of the main CRL and the one specified here.
-badsig
Corrupt the signature before writing it; this can be useful for testing.
-text
Print out the CRL in text form.
-verify
Verify the signature in the CRL.
-noout
Don't output the encoded version of the CRL.
-fingerprint
Output the fingerprint of the CRL.
-crlnumber
Output the number of the CRL.
-hash
Output a hash of the issuer name. This can be use to lookup CRLs in a directory by issuer name.
-hash_old
Outputs the "hash" of the CRL issuer name using the older algorithm as used by OpenSSL before version 1.0.0.
-issuer
Output the issuer name.
-lastupdate
Output the lastUpdate field.
-nextupdate
Output the nextUpdate field.
-nameopt option
This specifies how the subject or issuer names are displayed. See openssl-namedisplay-options(1) for details.
-CAfile file, -no-CAfile, -CApath dir, -no-CApath, -CAstore uri, -no-CAstore
See "Trusted Certificate Options" in openssl-verification-options(1) for details.
-provider name
-provider-path path
-propquery propq
See "Provider Options" in openssl(1), provider(7), and property(7).

EXAMPLES

Convert a CRL file from PEM to DER:

 openssl crl -in crl.pem -outform DER -out crl.der

Output the text form of a DER encoded certificate:

 openssl crl -in crl.der -text -noout

BUGS

Ideally it should be possible to create a CRL using appropriate options and files too.
