NAME gencert - Generate a test NSS database for mod_nss
SYNOPSIS gencert <destdir>
DESCRIPTION A tool used to generate a self-signed CA as well as server and user certificates for mod_nss testing.
This is used to generate a default NSS database for the mod_nss Apache module. It does not test to see if an existing database already exists, so use with care.
gencert will generate a new NSS database with the password "httptest".
It generates a self-signed CA with the subject "CN=Certificate Shack, O=example.com, C=US"
It also generates a certificate suitable for servers with the subject "CN=<FQDN>, O=example.com, C=US", and a user certificate with the sub- ject "E=alpha@<FQDN>, CN=Frank Alpha, UID=alpha, OU=People, O=exam- ple.com, C=US".
The nicknames it uses are:
CA: cacert Server certificate: Server-Cert User cert: alpha
OPTIONS <destdir> Specifies the destination directory where the NSS databases will be created.
