certmonger.conf - configuration file for certmonger
The certmonger.conf file contains default settings used by certmonger.
Its format is more or less that of a typical INI-style file. The only
sections currently of note are named defaults and selfsign.
Within the defaults section, these variables and values are recognized:
ttls This is the list of times, given in seconds, before a
certificate's not-after validity date (often referred to as its
expiration time) when certmonger should warn that the
certificate will soon no longer be valid. If certmonger is
configured to automatically renew the certificate, it will also
attempt to do so at these times. The default list of values is
"2419200, 604800, 259200, 172800, 86400".
This is the method by which certmonger will notify the system
administrator that a certificate will soon become invalid. The
recognized values are syslog and mail. The default is syslog.
This is the destination to which certmonger will send
notifications. It can be a syslog priority and/or facility,
separated by a period, or it can be an email address. The
default value is daemon.notice.
This is the symmetric cipher which will be used to encrypt
private keys stored in OpenSSL's PEM format. Recognized values
include aes128 and aes256. The default is aes128. It is not
recommended that this value be changed except in cases where the
default is incompatible with other software.
digest This is the digest algorithm which will be used when signing
certificate signing requests and self-signed certificates.
Recognized values include sha1, sha256, sha384, and sha512. The
default is sha256. It is not recommended that this value be
changed except in cases where the default is incompatible with
Within the selfsign section, these variables and values are recognized:
This is the validity period given to self-signed certificates.
The value is specified as a combination of years (y), months
(M), weeks (w), days (d), hours (h), minutes (m), and/or seconds
(s). If no unit of time is specified, seconds are assumed. The
default value is 1y.
This controls whether or not self-signed certificates will have
their subjectUniqueID and issuerUniqueID fields populated.
While RFC5280 prohibits their use, they may be needed and/or
used by older applications. The default value is no.
