NAME

bbstored-certs - Manage certificates for the Box Backup system

SYNOPSIS

bbstored-certs certs-dir command [arguments]

DESCRIPTION

bbstored-certs creates and signs certificates for use in Box Backup. It allows the user to create and sign the server keys, as well as signing client keys.
All commands must be followed by the certs-dir, which is the directory in which the certificates are stored.

Commands

There are 3 commands:
init
Create the certs-dir, and generate the server keys for bbstored. certs-dir cannot exist before running the command.
sign-server servercsrfile
Sign the server certificate. The servercsrfile is the file generated by the init command.
sign clientcsrfile
Sign a client certificate. The clientcsrfile is generated during client setup. See bbackupd-config(8). Send the signed certificate back to the client, and install according to the instructions given by bbackupd-config.

FILES

raidfile-config(8) generates the raidfile.conf(5) file.
