security certificate sign

Sign a Digital Certificate using Self-Signed Root CA

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

This command signs a digital certificate signing request and generates a certificate using a Self-Signed Root CA certificate in either PEM or PKCS12 format. You can use the security certificate generate-csr command to generate a digital certificate signing request.

Parameters

-vserver <vserver name> - Name of Vserver

This specifies the name of the Vserver on which the signed certificate will exist.

-ca <text> - Certificate Authority to Sign

This specifies the name of the Certificate Authority that will sign the certificate.

-ca-serial <text> - Serial Number of CA Certificate

This specifies the serial number of the Certificate Authority that will sign the certificate.

[-expire-days <integer>] - Number of Days until Expiration

This specifies the number of days until the signed certificate expires. The default is 365 days. Possible values are between 1 and 36510.

[-format <certificate format>] - Certificate Format

This specifies the format of signed certificate. The default value is PEM. Possible values include PEM and PKCS12.

[-destination {(ftp|http)://(hostname|IPv4 Address|'['IPv6 Address']')...}] - Where to Send File

This specifies the destination to upload the signed certificate. This option can only be used when the format is PKCS12.

[-hash-function <hashing function>] - Hashing Function

This specifies the cryptographic hashing function for the self-signed certificate. The default value is SHA256. Possible values include SHA1, SHA256 and MD5.

Examples

This example signs a digital certificate for a Vserver named vs0 using a Certificate Authority certificate that has a ca of www.ca.com and a ca-serial of 4F4EB629 in PEM format using the SHA256 hashing function.

cluster1::> security certificate sign -vserver vs0 -ca www.ca.com -ca-serial 4F4EB629 -expire-days 36 -format PEM -hash-function SHA256
