make-ssl-cert - Debconf wrapper for openssl
make-ssl-cert template output-certificate [--force-overwrite]
make-ssl-cert generate-default-snakeoil [--force-overwrite]
make-ssl-cert is a simple debconf to openssl wrapper to create self-
signed certificates. It requires a source template (Ex:
/usr/share/ssl-cert/ssleay.cnf) and it will place the new generated
certificate in the specified output file.
Invoked with "generate-default-snakeoil", it will generate
/etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem and /etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-
A summary of options are included below.
Use this option ONLY when strictly required since it will over-
write the output certificate.
