SYNOPSIS

openvas-mkcert [-q] [-f]

DESCRIPTION

The OpenVAS Scanner protects its communication with clients by using SSL. SSL requires the scanner to present a certificate to the client, and the client can optionally present a certificate to the scanner.

This script openvas-mkcert creates a certificate authority (if none exists already) and generates the scanner certificate.

OPTIONS

-q quickly generates a new certificate, without asking any question

-f force overwriting of already existing certificate files
