NAME

nseq - create or examine a netscape certificate sequence 

SYNOPSIS

openssl nseq[-in filename][-out filename][-toseq] 

DESCRIPTION

The nseq command takes a file containing a Netscape certificatesequence and prints out the certificates contained in it or takes afile of certificates and converts it into a Netscape certificatesequence. 

COMMAND OPTIONS

-in filename
This specifies the input filename to read or standard input if thisoption is not specified.
-out filename
specifies the output filename or standard output by default.
-toseq
normally a Netscape certificate sequence will be input and the outputis the certificates contained in it. With the -toseq option thesituation is reversed: a Netscape certificate sequence is created froma file of certificates.
 

EXAMPLES

Output the certificates in a Netscape certificate sequence

 openssl nseq -in nseq.pem -out certs.pem

Create a Netscape certificate sequence

 openssl nseq -in certs.pem -toseq -out nseq.pem
 

NOTES

The PEM encoded form uses the same headers and footers as a certificate:

 -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- -----END CERTIFICATE-----

A Netscape certificate sequence is a Netscape specific form that can be sentto browsers as an alternative to the standard PKCS#7 format when severalcertificates are sent to the browser: for example during certificate enrollment.It is used by Netscape certificate server for example. 

BUGS

This program needs a few more options: like allowing DER or PEM input andoutput files and allowing multiple certificate files to be used.
