make-ssl-cert

Debconf wrapper for openssl

SYNOPSIS

make-ssl-cert template output-certificate [--force-overwrite] make-ssl-cert generate-default-snakeoil [--force-overwrite]

DESCRIPTION

make-ssl-cert is a simple debconf to openssl wrapper to create self- signed certificates. It requires a source template (Ex: /usr/share/ssl-cert/ssleay.cnf) and it will place the new generated certificate in the specified output file. Invoked with "generate-default-snakeoil", it will generate /etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem and /etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert- snakeoil.key.

OPTIONS

A summary of options are included below. --force-overwrite Use this option ONLY when strictly required since it will over‐ write the output certificate.
