DESCRIPTION

The file ssl-admin.conf contains settings that control site- specific settings for your default key size, length, and location information.

This configuration file is essentially a called perl script with the needed variables assigned.

KEY INFORMATION

KEY_SIZE (num)
  The length, in bits, for the default key size. A minimum of 1024 is recommended. This option can be changed at run time.
KEY_DAYS (num)
  The length, in days, for the default period a certificate is valid for. 365 is recommended for web, mail, etc, servers. 3650 is recommended for VPN certificates. This option can be changed at run time.
KEY_CN (str)
  This is the default Common Name for a certificate. Leaving the value empty is recommended. This option is always asked for at run time.
KEY_CRL_LOC (str)
  The publicly available location for your CRL (Certificate Revokation List). At this time, ssl-admin does not have the ability of sending the CRL to another system. This value simply allows it to be set within each certificate. This string must start with "URI:", and be followed with a standard URL. For example, "URI:http://www.example.com/crl.pem"
