ca-mgmt A simple CA management tool (c) 2012 Andy Smith <email@example.com> / Northstar Networks https://github.com/m0vkg/ca-mgmt http://www.nsnw.co.uk/ INTRODUCTION ca-mgmt is a simple CA management tool, written in bash, and inspired by Kees Leune's "Setting up your own certificate authority" guide at http://www.leune.org/blog/kees/pages/ca.html. ca-mgmt will set up a root CA, then set up two further CAs for sites and users, and finally sign the latter two with the former. QUICK START $ ./ca-mgmt -i This will create the necessary directories and files needed for the CAs. An openssl.cnf config file will be created with some default values under the 'root-ca' directory. Follow the prompts, and the CA certificates and keys will be generated. COMMANDS -i Initialise the CAs. -x Destroy the CAs. -c <name> Create a certificate signing request and key for <name>. -s <name> Sign a certificate signing request for <name>. OPTIONS -t <type> Specify the CA type ('site' or 'user' by default). This option is required for -c and -s. -k <size> Specify the size of the key in bits. If given along with -i, this will be the size of the key generated for the CAs. Defaults to 4096. -l <days> Specify the validity (in days) of certificate signing requests and certificates. If given along with -i, this will be the length of the CA certificates. Defaults to 3650 (10 years). -d Turn on debugging. Initialisation-specific options -f Specify an existing openssl.cnf file to use. This will be copied in instead of generating a new one. -1 Specify the organisation name. -2 Specify the locality (towm/city). -3 Specify the county/state/province. -4 Specify the two-letter country code. -5 Specify the organisational unit. -6 Specify the e-mail address. (options -1 through -6 will be used to generate openssl.cnf) TODO * Certificate revocation. The directories exist for this, but hasn't been implemented fully yet. * Management of existing certificates.
