eurephiadm-certs - Certificate management for eurephia


Available modes for the certificate command are:
-A | --add
Register a new certificate
-D | --delete
Delete a registered certificate
-l | --list
List all registered certificates

-h | --help <mode>
Help about a specific mode


The list mode will list all registered certificates. It accepts one parameter:
-S | --sort <sort key>
Decide the sort order of the certificate list

Available sort keys are:

certid Numeric certificate ID
depth Certificate depth
digest Certificate SHA1 digest
cname Certificate Common Name field
org Certificate organisation field
email Certificate e-mail address field
registered When the certificate was registered in eurephia.


The add mode will register a new certificate.
-d | --depth
Certificate depth, required.
-D | --digest
SHA1 fingerprint/digest of the new certificate
-C | --common-name
Common name (CN) field of the certificate
-O | --organisation
Organisation (O) field of the certificate
-E | --email
e-mail address (emailAddress) of the certificate

Usually the certificate depth value needs to be 0, if you are registering user account certificates. CA certificates usually have a value bigger than 0.

If you have the certificate file available, you can use the following options to retrieve the needed information directly from a certificate file.

-f | --certfile
File name of the certificate file.
-p | --pkcs12
If the file is in PKCS#12 format.

The default format is PEM format, unless --pkcs12 is given. These two options cannot be used together with -D, -C, -O or -E. But the certificate depth must be given to indicate the certificate depth.


The delete mode will remove a certificate from the certificate database.
-i | --certid
Indicates a unique certificate ID
-d | --digest
A unique SHA1 fingerprint/digest value
-C | --common-name
Common Name (CN) field of a certificate
-O | --organisation
Organisation (O) field of a certificate
-E | --email
e-mail address (emailAddress) of a certificate

You can use any of these parameters to indicate a search criteria for the certificate (or certificates) you want to delete. You will be provided with a list over certificates which matches your search criteria and you will need to approve the deletion of the matching certificate(s).
