       gencert - Generate a test NSS database for mod_nss


       gencert <destdir>


       A  tool  used  to  generate  a  self-signed CA as well as server and user certificates for
       mod_nss testing.

       This is used to generate a default NSS database for the mod_nss Apache module. It does not
       test to see if an existing database already exists, so use with care.

       gencert will generate a new NSS database with the password "httptest".

       It generates a self-signed CA with the subject "CN=Certificate Shack,, C=US"

       It  also  generates  a  certificate  suitable  for  servers  with  the subject "CN=<FQDN>,, C=US", and a user certificate with the  subject  "E=alpha@<FQDN>,  CN=Frank
       Alpha, UID=alpha, OU=People,, C=US".

       The nicknames it uses are:

              CA:                   cacert
              Server certificate:   Server-Cert
              User cert:            alpha


              Specifies the destination directory where the NSS databases will be created.
