A Go package for creating temporary x509 test certificates

There are many Certificate generation tools out there, but most focus on being a CLI tool. This package is focused on providing helper functions for creating Certificates. These helper functions can be used as part of Go tests per the example below.

func TestSomething(t *testing.T) {
  err := testcerts.GenerateCertsToFile("/tmp/cert", "/tmp/key")
  if err != nil {
    // do stuff

  _ = something.Run("/tmp/cert", "/tmp/key")
  // do more testing

The goal of this package, is to make testing TLS based services easier. Without having to leave the comfort of your editor, or place test certificates in your repo.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
