HP Open Source Security for OpenVMS Volume 2: HP SSL for OpenVMS

Chapter 3 Using the Certificate Tool

  Table of Contents


HP SSL for OpenVMS provides a certificate tool that is a simple menu-driven interface for viewing and creating SSL certificates. The OpenSSL Certificate Tool enables you to perform the most important certification functions with ease. Using it, you can view certificates and certificate requests, create certificate requests, sign your own certificate, create your own certificate authority, and sign client certificate requests. Additional hash functions are included.

NOTE: Some OpenSSL commands are beyond the scope of the Certificate Tool. For these, use the command-line OpenSSL utility. See Chapter 5 for more information
