Introduction

ct-submit is a program that submits X.509 certificate chains to Certificate Transparency log servers. It returns the Signed Certificate Timestamp structure in a format suitable for use with Apache's mod_ssl_ct module and nginx-ct.

Building

ct-submit is written in Go. Just run go build to build it.

Usage

ct-submit takes a single argument - the URL of the log server. If the scheme is not specified it defaults to https://. It reads the certificate chain in PEM format from stdin. The leaf certificate should be the first certificate in the chain, followed by any intermediate certificates and, optionally, the root certificate.

The encoded SCT structure is written in binary to stdout.

The following example demonstrates submitting the chain in gpe.pem to Google's pilot log server. The SCT is written to gpe.sct, which is in a format suitable for use with Apache's mod_ssl_ct module and nginx-ct.

$ ./ct-submit ct.googleapis.com/pilot <gpe.pem >gpe.sct
$ xxd gpe.sct
