DESCRIPTION

This sub-command of pki(1) is used to issue a certificate using a CA certificate and private key.  

OPTIONS

-h, --help
Print usage information with a summary of the available options.
-v, --debug level
Set debug level, default: 1.
-+, --options file
Read command line options from file.
-i, --in file
Public key or PKCS#10 certificate request file to issue. If not given the key/request is read from STDIN.
-t, --type type
Type of the input. One of pub (public key), priv (private key), rsa (RSA private key), ecdsa (ECDSA private key), ed25519 (Ed25519 private key) bliss (BLISS private key) or pkcs10 (PKCS#10 certificate request), defaults to pub.
-k, --cakey file
CA private key file. Either this or --cakeyid is required.
-x, --cakeyid hex
Smartcard or TPM CA private key object handle in hex format with an optional 0x prefix. Either this or --cakey is required.
-c, --cacert file
CA certificate file. Required.
-d, --dn subject-dn
Subject distinguished name (DN) of the issued certificate.
-a, --san subjectAltName
subjectAltName extension to include in certificate. Can be used multiple times.
-l, --lifetime days
Days the certificate is valid, default: 1095. Ignored if both an absolute start and end time are given.
-F, --not-before datetime
Absolute time when the validity of the certificate begins. The datetime format is defined by the --dateform option.
-T, --not-after datetime
Absolute time when the validity of the certificate ends. The datetime format is defined by the --dateform option.
-D, --dateform form
strptime(3) format for the --not-before and --not-after options, default: %d.%m.%y %T
-s, --serial hex
Serial number in hex. It is randomly allocated by default.
-e, --flag flag
Add extendedKeyUsage flag. One of serverAuth, clientAuth, crlSign, or ocspSigning. Can be used multiple times.
-g, --digest digest
Digest to use for signature creation. One of md5, sha1, sha224, sha256, sha384, or sha512. The default is determined based on the type and size of the signature key.
-R, --rsa-padding padding
Padding to use for RSA signatures. Either pkcs1 or pss, defaults to pkcs1.
-f, --outform encoding
Encoding of the created certificate file. Either der (ASN.1 DER) or pem (Base64 PEM), defaults to der.
-b, --ca
Include CA basicConstraint extension in certificate.
-u, --crl uri
CRL distribution point URI to include in certificate. Can be used multiple times.
-I, --crlissuer issuer
Optional CRL issuer for the CRL at the preceding distribution point.
-o, --ocsp uri
OCSP AuthorityInfoAccess URI to include in certificate. Can be used multiple times.
-p, --pathlen len
Set path length constraint.
-B, --addrblock block
RFC 3779 address block to include in certificate. block is either a CIDR subnet (such as 10.0.0.0/8) or an arbitrary address range (192.168.1.7-192.168.1.13). Can be repeated to include multiple blocks. Please note that the supplied blocks are included in the certificate as is, so for standards compliance, multiple blocks must be supplied in correct order and adjacent blocks must be combined. Refer to RFC 3779 for details.
-n, --nc-permitted name
Add permitted NameConstraint extension to certificate. For DNS or email constraints, the identity type is not always detectable by the given name. Use the dns: or email: prefix to force a constraint type.
-N, --nc-excluded name
Add excluded NameConstraint extension to certificate. For DNS or email constraints, the identity type is not always detectable by the given name. Use the dns: or email: prefix to force a constraint type.
-X, --critical oid
Add a critical extension with the given OID.
-M, --policy-mapping issuer-oid:subject-oid
Add policyMapping from issuer to subject OID.
-E, --policy-explicit len
Add requireExplicitPolicy constraint.
-H, --policy-inhibit len
Add inhibitPolicyMapping constraint.
-A, --policy-any len
Add inhibitAnyPolicy constraint.

 

Certificate Policy

Multiple certificatePolicy extensions can be added. Each with the following information:
-P, --cert-policy oid
OID to include in certificatePolicy extension. Required.
-C, --cps-uri uri
Certification Practice statement URI for certificatePolicy.
-U, --user-notice text
User notice for certificatePolicy.
 

EXAMPLES

To save repetitive typing, command line options can be stored in files. Lets assume pki.opt contains the following contents:


  --cacert ca_cert.der --cakey ca_key.der --digest sha256
  --flag serverAuth --lifetime 1460 --type pkcs10

Then the following command can be used to issue a certificate based on a given PKCS#10 certificate request and the options above:


  pki --issue --options pki.opt --in req.der > cert.der
