The grid-proxy-info program extracts information from an
X.509 proxy certificates, and optionally displays or returns an exit code
based on that information.
The default mode of operation is to print the following facts
about the current user’s default proxy: subject, issuer, identity,
type, strength, path, and time left. If the command-line option
-exists or -e is included in the command-line, nothing is
printed unless one of the print options is specified. Instead,
grid-proxy-info determines if a valid proxy exists and, if so, exits
with the exit code 0; if a proxy does not exist or is not valid,
grid-proxy-info exits with the exit code 1. Additional validity
criteria can be added by using the -valid, -v, -hours,
-h, -bits, or -b command-line options. If used, these
options must occur after the -e or -exists command-line
options. Those options are only valid if one of the -e or
-exists command-line options is used.

Display the version number of the grid-proxy-info
Display verbose error messages.
-file PROXYFILE, -f
Read the proxy located in the file PROXYFILE
instead of using the default proxy.
Display the proxy certificate’s subject
Display the proxy certificate issuer’s
Display the proxy certificate’s identity. For
non-independent proxies, the identity is the subject of the certificate which
issued the first proxy in the proxy chain.
Display the type of proxy certificate. The type string
includes the format ("legacy", "draft", or RFC 3280
compliant), identity type ("impersonation" or
"independent"), and policy ("limited" or
"full"). See grid-proxy-init(1)
for information about how to
create different types of proxies.
Display the number of seconds remaining until the proxy
Display the strength (in bits) of the key associated with
the proxy certificate.
Display the default information for the proxy when also
using the -e or -exists command-line option.
Display the proxy certificate contents to standard
output, including policy information, issuer, public key, and modulus.
Display the path to the file containing the default proxy
Display distinguished names for the subject, issuer, and
identity using the string representation described in RFC 2253, instead of the
Perform an existence and validity check for the proxy. If
a valid proxy exists and matches the criteria described by other command-line
options (if any), exit with 0; otherwise, exit with 1. This option must be
before other validity check predicate in the command-line options. If this
option is specified, the output of the default facts about the proxy is
disabled. Use the -all option to have the information displayed as well
as the exit code set.
-valid HOURS:MINUTES, -v
HOURS:MINUTES, -hours HOURS, -h
Check that the proxy certificate is valid for at least
HOURS hours and MINUTES minutes. If it is not,
grid-proxy-info will exit with exit code 1.
-bits BITS, -b BITS
Check that the proxy certificate key strength is at least
