The Demo CA installation creates the following directories and contents:
|You use this directory to store copies of all certificates and key files that you as a CA issue
|When you revoke a certificate, it is added to file crl.pem in here
|Holds the database of certificates you have issued. When you create a certificate, it is created in here with a numeric name, for example 01.pem.
|Contains your self-signed CA root certificate in several formats and your private key
The following files are installed by default in /opt/microfocus/DemoCA or $COBSSL (if set):
|Script that creates a request for a server certificate
|Script that creates a client certificate
|Index to the certificates stored in newcerts
|Script that creates a CA that can be used to sign and verify certificates. This is for demonstration and development purposes only and should not be used in production.
|Script that processes a server certificate request and signs the certificate
|OpenSSL command-line utility
|Configuration file that specifies directories and defaults for SSL support
|Random number used in generating keys. This number is generated anew each time you create a key.
|Number to be allocated to the next certificate you issue.
|Certificate request (together with the private key in the one file) from which the server certificate was created
|Your server certificate
|Your server's private key
