nseq - create or examine a netscape certificate sequence
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.
- -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.
- 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.
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
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.
This program needs a few more options: like allowing DER
input andoutput files and allowing multiple certificate files to be used.
