NAME - parse and insert in certs to LDAP



Write CA certificates and CRLs to a LDIF file. This is intended for initially setting up the CA entries not for daily CRL update. The entries are of objectclass certificationAuthority and contain the attributes cACertificate;binary, authorityRevocationList;binary and certificateRevocationList;binary. This might require extending schemas on LDAPv2 servers. Have a look at your LDAP servers configuration documentation.
