       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.
