NAME

       mozroots  -  Download  and import trusted root certificates from Mozilla's LXR into Mono's
       certificate store

SYNOPSIS

       mozroots [--import [--machine] [--sync | --ask | --ask-add | --ask-remove]]

DESCRIPTION

       This program downloads the trusted root certificates from the Mozilla LXR  web  site  into
       the Mono certificate store.

       Mono  by  default  does not ship with any default certificates and allows the user to pick
       its trusted certificates.  The mozroots command will bring the Mozilla  certificates  into
       your local machine.

OPTIONS

       --import
              Import the certificates into the trust store.

       --sync Synchronize  (add/remove)  the  trust  store with the certificates.  Synchronize is
              useful for new Mono installations (no roots) and for  automated  updates  (no  user
              confirmation for addition or removal).

       --ask  Always  confirm  before adding or removing trusted certificates.  Note: The initial
              import will likely add about 100 new trusted root  certificates  into  your  store.
              You'll have to answer yes to every one of them if this option is specified.

       --ask-add
              Always  confirm  before adding a new trusted certificate.  Note: The initial import
              will likely add about 100 new trusted root certificates  into  your  store.  You'll
              have to answer yes to every one of them if this option is specified.

       --ask-remove
              Always confirm before removing an existing trusted certificate.

ADVANCED OPTIONS

       --url url
              Specify  an  alternative  URL  for downloading the trusted certificates (LXR source
              format). This should only be useful for testing or if the Mozilla's  LXR  web  site
              address  is changed. It can also be used to cache a local copy of the LXR file into
              your local intranet.

       --file name
              Do not download from LXR but use  the  specified  file.  This  is  useful  if  many
              computers  have to download the same file from the Internet.  This way you can keep
              a local copy on a file server (and minimize network traffic).

       --pkcs7 name
              Export the certificates into a PKCS#7 file. This is useful for debugging purpose or
              for re-importing the same list into other software.

       --machine
              Import  the  certificate  in  the machine trust store. The default is to import all
              trusted root certificates into the current user store.

       --quiet
              Limit console output to errors and confirmations  messages.  This  is  useful  when
              scripting.

EXAMPLES

       After  the  initial  Mono  installation  you'll  have  no  trusted roots certificates pre-
       installed.  Neither will you have some root test certificates installed (your own  or  the
       ones  provided  by  using  setreg ). In this case the simplest thing to do, if you want to
       trust all those certificates, is to import and synchronize.
            $ mozroots --import --sync

            Import process completed.

       If you created some test certificates (e.g. for using SSL/TLS with  XSP)  and/or  if  your
       enterprise requires some additional root certificates (e.g. intranet) then you may want to
       skip the removal part of the process. You can do this by asking for a removal confirmation
       (--ask-remove option) and answer no when prompted.

            Are you sure you want to remove this certificate ? no

       You can still use the synchronize option (--sync) if you have activated
       the default test roots certificate on your system. They will be removed
       at the end of the synchronization process but you can quickly add them
       back with the
       setreg
       tool.
            $ setreg 1 true

       Another  option  to  ease  updates  is  to synchronize your machine trust store (using the
       --machine option) and keep your customized (test) certificates in your personal store  (or
       vice versa). Note that every user on this computer will be trusting all the newly imported
       certificates.

       Once the initial import is complete the number  of  changes  (additions  or  removals)  is
       generally  very  low.  In this case it makes sense to know about any changes (i.e. ask for
       confirmation). No confirmation will be required if no  changes  are  made  to  your  trust
       store.
