NAME

       make-ssl-cert - Debconf wrapper for openssl

SYNOPSIS

       make-ssl-cert template output-certificate [--force-overwrite]
       make-ssl-cert generate-default-snakeoil [--force-overwrite]

DESCRIPTION

       make-ssl-cert  is  a  simple debconf to openssl wrapper to create self-
       signed   certificates.    It   requires   a   source   template    (Ex:
       /usr/share/ssl-cert/ssleay.cnf)  and  it  will  place the new generated
       certificate in the specified output file.
       Invoked   with   "generate-default-snakeoil",    it    will    generate
       /etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem   and   /etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-
       snakeoil.key.

OPTIONS

       A summary of options are included below.

       --force-overwrite
              Use this option  ONLY  when  strictly  required  since  it  will
              overwrite the output certificate.
