NAME

       winpr-makecert - A tool to create X.509 certificates.

SYNOPSIS

       winpr-makecert  [-rdp]  [-silent]  [-live] [-format { crt | pem | pfx }] [-p password] [-n
       common_name] [-y years] [-m months] [-len length] [-# serial] [-a { md5 | sha1 | sha256  |
       s384 | sha512 }] [-path outputpath] [outputname]

DESCRIPTION

       winpr-makecert  is  a  tool  for  generating  X.509 certificates modeled after the Windows
       command MakeCert. winpr-makecert aims to be command line compatible with MakeCert  however
       not all options are supported or implemented yet.

       Unimplemented  features are not described here. They are marked as "Unsupported" in winpr-
       makecerts help.

       In contrast to it's Windows counterpart winpr-makecert does, unless the  -live  option  is
       given,  always  creates  and  save  a certificate.  If outputname isn't set it is tried to
       determine the host name of the computer the command is run on.
       Warning: if the file already exists it will be overwritten without asking.

       Without further options the generated certificates have the following properties:

       * 2048 bit long
       * sha256 as hash algorithm
       * the detected host name is used as common name
       * a time stamp is used as serial number
       * validity period of one year
       * saved in the current working directory in crt format

OPTIONS

       -rdp   Dummy parameter. Can be  used  to  quickly  generate  a  certificate  with  default
              properties without specifying any further parameters.

       -silent
              Don't print the generated certificate to stdout.

       -f format
              Three formats are supported: crt, pem and pfx.
              crt  outputs  the  key  and  the  certificate in a separate file each with the file
              endings .key and .crt.
              pem outputs the key and certificate into a single file with the file ending pem.
              And pfx outputs key and certificate into a  pkcs12 file with the ending .pfx.

       -p password
              Password to use if the pfx format is used as format.

       -live  Don't write the key/certificate to disk. When used from the command line  this  can
              be thought as "dummy" mode.

       -n common_name
              The common name to use in the certificate.

       -m months
              Validity period in months.

       -y years
              Validity  period  in  years.  If months and years are specified the specified month
              parameter will take precedence.

       -len length
              Key length in bits to use.

       -a { md5 | sha1 | sha256 | s384 | sha512 }
              The hashing algorithm to use.

       -# serial
              The serial number to use for the certificate.

       -path  A directory where the certificate should be created in.

       outputname
              The base name of the created file(s). A  suffix,  the  format  specific  suffix  is
              appended to this name.

EXAMPLES

       winpr-makecert -rdp

       Creates  a certificate with the default properties, saved to a file in the current working
       directory in crt format named like the host. If the host  is  named  freerdp  the  created
       files are called freerdp.key and freerdp.crt.

       winpr-makecert -len 4096 -a sha384 -path /tmp -# 22 -m 144 -y 1 -format crt mycert

       The command above creates the file /tmp/mycert.pem containing a key and a certificate with
       a length of 4096. It will use sha384 as hash algorithm.  The certificate  has  the  serial
       number 22 and is valid for 12 years (144 months).

EXIT STATUS

       0      Successful program execution.

       1      Otherweise.
