Need help for X509

Namrata Patil

Hi,

 

OPENSSL
-------
demo/x509

 

 

I noticed that Makefile is not there for X509 in demo folder.

So tried to build in X509 by creating new makefile and was able to get .o and exe for two C files present in X509 directory.

 

I have question about X509 usage. How to test this command for OpenSSL?

I found information about this in OpenSSL document online which I am briefing here.

 

x509 - Certificate display and signing utility.

The x509 command is a multi purpose certificate utility. It can be used to display certificate information, convert certificates to various forms, sign certificate requests like a ``mini CA'' or edit certificate trust settings.

Since there are a large number of options they will split up into various sections.

So I just don’t know how to test this utility for OpenSSL.

How to create exe for X509?

Please suggest.

x509 ca - all CA management utilities
 
x509 crl - all CRL management utilities.
 
etc.
 
The documentation is there in the site. If you have any specific questions, do let us know and we shall try to help you.
 
 
"How to create exe for X509?" - There is no need to 'create'. Once you successfully build, it will be created.

So this mean it is just enough to create new make file to compile C files for mkreq and mkca and directly I can use X509 utility?

There is no need to create a new makefile at all. If your build was successful, you will have the openssl executable(s) present already. You can use the command line for testing:
 
openssl ca <CA management>
openssl crl <CRL management>
openssl pkcs12 <PKCS management> etc
