The test credentials (CONFIRMEDTESTKEY) have been generated with the following
commands:

Bad credentials (badclient.* / badserver.*):
============================================

These are self-signed certificates:

$ openssl req -x509 -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout badserver.key -out badserver.pem \
  -days 3650 -nodes

When prompted for certificate information, everything is default except the
common name which is set to badserver.test.google.com.


Valid test credentials:
=======================

The ca is self-signed:
----------------------

$ openssl req -x509 -new -newkey rsa:1024 -nodes -out ca.pem -config ca-openssl.cnf -days 3650 -extensions v3_req
When prompted for certificate information, everything is default.

client is issued by CA:
-----------------------

$ openssl genrsa -out client.key.rsa 1024
$ openssl pkcs8 -topk8 -in client.key.rsa -out client.key -nocrypt
$ rm client.key.rsa
$ openssl req -new -key client.key -out client.csr

When prompted for certificate information, everything is default except the
common name which is set to testclient.

$ openssl ca -in client.csr -out client.pem -keyfile ca.key -cert ca.pem -verbose -config openssl.cnf -days 3650 -updatedb
$ openssl x509 -in client.pem -out client.pem -outform PEM

server0 is issued by CA:
------------------------

$ openssl genrsa -out server0.key.rsa 1024
$ openssl pkcs8 -topk8 -in server0.key.rsa -out server0.key -nocrypt
$ rm server0.key.rsa
$ openssl req -new -key server0.key -out server0.csr

When prompted for certificate information, everything is default except the
common name which is set to *.test.google.com.au.

$ openssl ca -in server0.csr -out server0.pem -keyfile ca.key -cert ca.pem -verbose -config openssl.cnf -days 3650 -updatedb
$ openssl x509 -in server0.pem -out server0.pem -outform PEM

server1 is issued by CA with a special config for subject alternative names:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

$ openssl genrsa -out server1.key.rsa 1024
$ openssl pkcs8 -topk8 -in server1.key.rsa -out server1.key -nocrypt
$ rm server1.key.rsa
$ openssl req -new -key server1.key -out server1.csr -config server1-openssl.cnf

When prompted for certificate information, everything is default except the
common name which is set to *.test.google.com.

$ openssl ca -in server1.csr -out server1.pem -keyfile ca.key -cert ca.pem -verbose -config server1-openssl.cnf -days 3650 -extensions v3_req -updatedb
$ openssl x509 -in server1.pem -out server1.pem -outform PEM

You may have to delete and recreate the index.txt file so that it is empty when
running the `openssl ca` command.
