       pki --signcrl -h | --help


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


       -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.

       -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.

       -l, --lifetime days
              Days  until  the  CRL  gets  a nextUpdate, default: 15. Ignored if both an absolute
              start and end time are given.

       -F, --this-update datetime
              Absolute time when the validity of the CRL begins. The datetime format  is  defined
              by the --dateform option.

       -T, --next-update datetime
              Absolute  time  when the validity of the CRL end. The datetime format is defined by
              the --dateform option.

       -D, --dateform form
              strptime(3) format  for  the  --this-update  and  --next-update  options,  default:
              %d.%m.%y %T

       -a, --lastcrl crl
              CRL of lastUpdate to copy revocations from.

       -b, --basecrl crl
              Base CRL to create a delta CRL for.

       -u, --crluri uri
              Freshest delta CRL URI to include in CRL. 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.

   Revoked Certificates
       Multiple  revoked certificates can be added to the CRL by either providing the certificate
       file or the respective serial number directly.  A reason and a timestamp can be configured
       for  each  revocation (they have to be given before each certificate/serial on the command

       -r, --reason reason
              The reason why the certificate was revoked. One of  key-compromise,  ca-compromise,
              affiliation-changed, superseded, cessation-of-operation, or certificate-hold.

       -d, --date ts
              Revocation date as Unix timestamp. Defaults to the current time.

       -z, --cert file
              Certificate file to revoke.

       -s, --serial hex
              Hexadecimal encoded serial number of the certificate to revoke.


       Revoke a certificate:

         pki --signcrl --cacert ca_cert.der --cakey ca_key.der \
             --reason superseded --cert cert.der > crl.der

       Update  an  existing  CRL with two new revocations, using the certificate's serial number,
       but no reason:

         pki --signcrl --cacert ca_cert.der --cakey ca_key.der \
             --lastcrl old_crl.der --serial 0123 --serial 0345 > crl.der
