DESCRIPTION

       This  sub-command  of  pki(1)  is  used  to issue a certificate using a CA certificate and
       private key.

OPTIONS

       -h, --help
              Print usage information with a summary of the available options.

       -v, --debug level
              Set debug level, default: 1.

       -+, --options file
              Read command line options from file.

       -i, --in file
              Public key or  PKCS#10  certificate  request  file  to  issue.  If  not  given  the
              key/request is read from STDIN.

       -t, --type type
              Type  of  the  input. One of pub (public key), priv (private key), rsa (RSA private
              key), ecdsa (ECDSA private key), ed25519 (Ed25519 private key) bliss (BLISS private
              key) or pkcs10 (PKCS#10 certificate request), defaults to pub.

       -k, --cakey file
              CA private key file. Either this or --cakeyid is required.

       -x, --cakeyid hex
              Smartcard  or  TPM  CA  private key object handle in hex format with an optional 0x
              prefix. Either this or --cakey is required.

       -c, --cacert file
              CA certificate file. Required.

       -d, --dn subject-dn
              Subject distinguished name (DN) of the issued certificate.

       -a, --san subjectAltName
              subjectAltName extension to include in certificate. Can be used multiple times.

       -l, --lifetime days
              Days the certificate is valid, default: 1095. Ignored if both an absolute start and
              end time are given.

       -F, --not-before datetime
              Absolute  time  when the validity of the certificate begins. The datetime format is
              defined by the --dateform option.

       -T, --not-after datetime
              Absolute time when the validity of the certificate ends.  The  datetime  format  is
              defined by the --dateform option.

       -D, --dateform form
              strptime(3)  format for the --not-before and --not-after options, default: %d.%m.%y
              %T

       -s, --serial hex
              Serial number in hex. It is randomly allocated by default.

       -e, --flag flag
              Add extendedKeyUsage flag. One of serverAuth, clientAuth, crlSign, or  ocspSigning.
              Can be used multiple times.

       -g, --digest digest
              Digest  to use for signature creation. One of md5, sha1, sha224, sha256, sha384, or
              sha512.  The default is determined based on the type and size of the signature key.

       -R, --rsa-padding padding
              Padding to use for RSA signatures. Either pkcs1 or pss, defaults to pkcs1.

       -f, --outform encoding
              Encoding of the created certificate file. Either der (ASN.1  DER)  or  pem  (Base64
              PEM), defaults to der.

       -b, --ca
              Include CA basicConstraint extension in certificate.

       -u, --crl uri
              CRL distribution point URI to include in certificate. Can be used multiple times.

       -I, --crlissuer issuer
              Optional CRL issuer for the CRL at the preceding distribution point.

       -o, --ocsp uri
              OCSP AuthorityInfoAccess URI to include in certificate. Can be used multiple times.

       -p, --pathlen len
              Set path length constraint.

       -B, --addrblock block
              RFC  3779  address  block  to include in certificate. block is either a CIDR subnet
              (such as 10.0.0.0/8) or an arbitrary address range (192.168.1.7-192.168.1.13).  Can
              be  repeated  to include multiple blocks.  Please note that the supplied blocks are
              included in the certificate as is, so for  standards  compliance,  multiple  blocks
              must  be  supplied  in correct order and adjacent blocks must be combined. Refer to
              RFC 3779 for details.

       -n, --nc-permitted name
              Add  permitted  NameConstraint  extension  to  certificate.  For   DNS   or   email
              constraints,  the identity type is not always detectable by the given name. Use the
              dns: or email: prefix to force a constraint type.

       -N, --nc-excluded name
              Add excluded NameConstraint extension to certificate. For DNS or email constraints,
              the  identity  type  is  not  always  detectable by the given name. Use the dns: or
              email: prefix to force a constraint type.

       -M, --policy-mapping issuer-oid:subject-oid
              Add policyMapping from issuer to subject OID.

       -E, --policy-explicit len
              Add requireExplicitPolicy constraint.

       -H, --policy-inhibit len
              Add inhibitPolicyMapping constraint.

       -A, --policy-any len
              Add inhibitAnyPolicy constraint.

   Certificate Policy
       Multiple certificatePolicy extensions can be added. Each with the following information:

       -P, --cert-policy oid
              OID to include in certificatePolicy extension. Required.

       -C, --cps-uri uri
              Certification Practice statement URI for certificatePolicy.

       -U, --user-notice text
              User notice for certificatePolicy.

EXAMPLES

       To save repetitive typing, command line options can  be  stored  in  files.   Lets  assume
       pki.opt contains the following contents:

         --cacert ca_cert.der --cakey ca_key.der --digest sha256
         --flag serverAuth --lifetime 1460 --type pkcs10

       Then  the  following  command  can be used to issue a certificate based on a given PKCS#10
       certificate request and the options above:

         pki --issue --options pki.opt --in req.der > cert.der
