NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       ipsec_certview  -  Displays the contents of IPsec certificate

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/sbin/ipsec_certview [options] file  [[options]  file]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies  a  file  that contains an X.509 public key certificate
 or certificate request.  Specifies  a  file  that
       contains  an X.509 certificate revocation list.  Specifies
       a file that contains a  private  key.   Specifies  a  file
       whose  contents  are in HEXL format. The default format is
       binary (DER) encoding.  Specifies a  file  whose  contents
       are  in  PEM  format.  The  default format is binary (DER)
       encoding.  Prints X.500-style  names  in  the  order  that
       would  be  used when fetching the certificate from an LDAP
       server.  Displays large numbers (for example, key  values)
       in  base  16  notation.   Sets  the output line width to n
       characters.  Displays a summary of the command options and

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  ipsec_certview command displays the contents of files
       containing public-key certificate information.  This  command
  and  other  related certificate commands provided in
       this IPsec implementation are intended  for  testing  purposes
  only.   They are not intended to provide a complete
       public-key certificate infrastructure.

       Each input file is read, and a formatted  display  of  the
       certificate  data is written to standard output.  Information
 displayed includes certificate subject name,  issuer,
       validity  dates,  key  information,   and extensions.  The
       type of  certificate-related  file  is  specified  by  the
       -cert,  -crl, and -prv options.  If no file type is specified,
 the utility will attempt to figure out the file type
       from the file contents.

       If both the file type and encoding format are omitted, the
       utility assumes binary encoding and  tries  to  guess  the
       file  type.   This  might  fail and produce spurious error
       messages,  particularly  if  the  file  is  actually   PEM
