certmonger(8) System Manager's Manual certmonger(8)

NAME

certmaster-submit
 

SYNOPSIS

certmaster-submit [-h serverHost] [-c cafile] [-C capath] [csrfile]
 

DESCRIPTION

certmaster-submit is the helper which certmonger uses to make requests to certmaster-based CAs. It is not normally run interactively, but it can be for troubleshooting purposes. The signing request which is to be submitted should either be in a file whose name is given as an argument, or fed into certmaster-submit via stdin.
 
There is no standard authenticated method for obtaining the root certificate from certmaster CAs, so certmonger does not support retrieving trust information from them.
 

OPTIONS

-h serverHost
Submit the request to the certmaster instance running on the named host. The default is localhost:51235 if a file named /var/run/certmaster.pid is found on the local system, and is read from /etc/certmaster/minion.conf if that file is not found.
-c cafile
Submit the request over HTTPS instead of HTTP, and only trust the server if its certificate was issued by the CA whose certificate is in the named file.
-C capath
Submit the request over HTTPS instead of HTTP, and only trust the server if its certificate was issued by a CA whose certificate is in a file in the named directory.
 

EXIT STATUS

0
if the certificate was issued. The certificate will be printed.
1
if the CA is still thinking. A cookie value will be printed.
2
if the CA rejected the request. An error message may be printed.
3
if the CA was unreachable. An error message may be printed.
4
if critical configuration information is missing. An error message may be printed.
 

FILES

/var/run/certmaster.pid
the certmaster service's PID file. Its presence is taken to indicate that this system is a CA, and that requests should be submitted to a certmaster server running on the local system.
/etc/certmaster/minion.conf
the certmaster minion configuration file. If there is no indication that the local system is a certmaster server, then this file is consulted to determine the location of the certmaster server.
 

KNOWN BUGS

Checking for the existence of certmaster's PID file is a terrible way to figure out whether we're a minion or not.
