cert2ldap - import a certificate into an LDAP server


cert2ldap [ options ] [ certificatefile ]


connect to server hostname.
use port port instead of the usual LDAP port 389.
store the issuer distinguished name of the certificate in the directory.
store the subject distinguished name of the certificate in the directory.
store the certificate in binary form in the directory.
store the serial number of the certificate in the directory.
increase debug level.
add all the attributes specified to the entry with distinguished name targetdn.
bind as user binddn to the directory.
use password to bind to the directory.
create a certificate mapping entry that specifies owner as the owner of the certificate.
use LDAP protocol version version to connect to the server.
use "userCertifiate;binary" format for update, some servers seem to require this, others are happy without.


Cert2ldap is used to import a certificate into an LDAP directory in such a as to allow the mod_authz_ldap Apache module to authenticate and authorize users based on their certificates. The certificate is either specified as a certificatefilename argument on the command line or read from standard input. There are essentially two ways to use the program: either a certificate is added as a userCertifcate attribute to a users node, or a certificate mapping node is added somewhere else in the directory, referencing the user.

The second form is active as soon as one if the options -i, -s, -o or -n are used. The first form uses only the -c option. The correct configuration of the entires can be checked using the certfind(1) program.

If the node to be updated does not exist yet, a minimal node is created. However this is only marginally useful in the case of a node containing the certificate proper.
