DESCRIPTION

efikeygen is a command line tool for generating keys and certificates to be used with pesign. These are standard X.509 certificates, and can potentially be generated with any certificate creation tool. efikeygen simply sets generates keys with sensible options set for a key to be used for PE image signing.

OPTIONS

--ca The certificate being generated is for a CA.

--self-sign
  The generated certificate is to be self signed.

--signer=nickname
  Nickname of certificate to be used to sign the generated certificate.

--token=token
  Use the specified NSS token’s certificate database.

--nickname=nickname
  The nickname to use for the generated certificate.

--common-name=common-name
  The X.509 Common Name for the generated certificate. This should be in rfc2253 syntax, i.e. "CN=John Doe,OU=editing,O=New York Times,L=New York,ST=NY,C=US"

--url=url
  Informational url regarding objects signed with this key.

--serial=serial number
  Serial number for use with this key. A certificate is identified by its signer and its serial number, so it’s best not to ever re-use this value with the same signer. By default, this value will be generated using /dev/urandom . It is not recommended to use this option to override that.
