pktool(1)

Name

pktool - manage certificates and keys

Synopsis

pktool [–f option_file] [–i] subcommand subcommand_options ...

Description

The pktool command allows users to manage the certificates and keys on multiple keystores including PKCS#11 tokens (that is, Cryptographic Framework) and standard file based keystore for OpenSSL.

pktool also provides support to list, delete and import a Certificate Revocation List (CRL). pktool does not provide support for creating CRLs, signing CRLs, or exporting CRLs. The CRL support for the PKCS#11 keystore is file-based.

Options

The following command options are supported:

–f option_file

Allows the user to set up the options in a file instead of entering the options on the command line.

This option is provided as a convenience for users because pktool can potentially have a large list of subcommands and associated options to be specified on the command line.

The format of the option_file is one option or value pair per-line.

An example option_file might looks as follows:


list
keystore=file
dir=/export/foo
objtype=key

–i

Allows the user to specify the subject-DN interactively for the gencert and gencsr subcommands. When –i is specified, the user is prompted to input some data to form a subject-DN.

An example of using the –i option follows:


Country Name (2 letter code) [US]:US
State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:CA
Locality Name (eg, city) []:Menlo Park
Organization Name (eg, company):Sun Microsystems Inc.
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section):OPG
Common Name (eg, YOUR name):John Smith
 Email Address []: john.smith@sun.com

The resulting subject-DN is:


"C=US, ST=CA, L=Menlo Park, O=Sun Microsystems Inc.,\
   OU=OPG, emailAddress=john.smith@sun.com, \
   CN=John Smith"

SUBCOMMANDS

The following subcommands are supported:

delete

The format for the delete subcommand is as follows:


pktool delete [token=token[:manuf[:serial]]]
              [objtype=private|public|both]
              [label=object-label]

pktool delete keystore=pkcs11
              objtype=cert[:public | private | both]]
              [token=token[:manuf[:serial]]]
              [label=cert-label]

pktool delete keystore=file
              objtype=crl
              infile=input-fn
              

Deletes a certificate, key, or certificate revocation list (CRL).

To delete a private certificate or key from PKCS#11 token, the user is prompted to authenticate to the PKCS#11 by entering the correct Personal Identification Number (PIN).

download

The format for the download subcommand is as follows:


 pktool download url=url_str 
                 [objtype=crl|cert]

              [keylen=key-size (for aes, arcfour, \
                   or generic keytypes only)]
              [print=y|n]

Generates a symmetric key in the specified keystore. The genkey subcommand prompts the user to enter a PIN for token-based keystore.

genkeypair

The format for the genkeypair subcommand is as follows:

pktool genkeypair [keystore=pkcs11]
                  label=key-label
                  [token=token[:manuf[:serial]]]

Generates a keypair in the specified keystore.

import

The format for the import subcommand is as follows:


pktool import [token=token>[:manuf>[:serial>]]]
              infile=input-fn

pktool import [keystore=pkcs11]
              infile=input-fn
              label=object-label
              [keytype=aes|arcfour|des|3des|generic]
              [sensitive=y|n]
              [extractable=y|n]

inittoken

The format for the inittoken subcommand is as follows:

pktool inittoken [ slotid=slot number ]
                 [ currlabel=token[:manuf[:serial]]]
                 [ newlabel=new token label ]

This command initializes a PKCS#11 token using C_InitToken API. The preferred method of locating a token is to specify its default label. Optionally, a new label can be assigned to the token by using the newlabel argument. If newlabel is not present, the token label is not modified. The user is prompted to enter the security officer (SO) PIN for this command to proceed. See the output of pktool tokens to get the slot number.

list

The format for the list subcommand is as follows:


pktool list [token=token[:manuf[:serial]]]
            [objtype=private|public|both]
            [label=label]

pktool list [keystore=pkcs11]
            [objtype=cert[:public | private | both]]
            [token=token[:manuf[:serial]]]
            [label=cert-label]
            [serial=hex-serial-number]
            [issuer=issuer-DN]
            [subject=subject-DN]

pktool list [keystore=pkcs11]
            objtype=key[:public | private | both]]
            [token=token[:manuf[:serial]]]
            [label=key-label]
            [keyvalue=y|n]

pktool list keystore=pkcs11
            objtype=crl
            infile=input-fn
           
            
pktool list keystore=file
            objtype=cert
            [infile=input-fn]
            [dir=directory-path]
            [serial=hex-serial-number]
            [issuer=issuer-DN]
            [subject=subject-DN]

pktool list keystore=file
            objtype=key
            [infile=input-fn]
            [dir=directory-path]
            [keyvalue=y|n]

Lists certificates, list keys, or list certificate revocation lists (CRL). When displaying a private certificate or key in PKCS#11 token, the user is prompted to authenticate to the PKCS#11 token by entering the correct PIN.

setpin

The format for the setpin subcommand is as follows:

pktool setpin [ keystore=pkcs11]
       [token=token[:manuf[:serial]]]
       [usertype=user | so]

Changes the passphrase used to authenticate a user to the PKCS#11 token. Passphrases can be any string of characters with lengths between 1 and 256 with no nulls.

setpin prompts the user for the old passphrase, if any. If the old passphrase matches, pktool prompts for the new passphrase twice. If the two entries of the new passphrases match, it becomes the current passphrase for the token.

For the Sun Software PKCS#11 softtoken keystore (default), the user must use the setpin command with the default passphrase changeme as the old passphrase to change the passphrase of the object store. This action is needed to initialize and set the passphrase to a newly created token object store.

If the usertype=so option is specified for PKCS#11 based tokens, the Security Officer (SO) user PIN is changed as opposed to the normal user PIN. By default the usertype is assumed to be user.

signcsr

The format for the signcsr subcommand is as follows:


signcsr keystore=pkcs11
        signkey=label (label of key to use for signing)
        csr=CSR_filename
        serial=serial_number_hex_string_for_final_certificate
        outcert=filename_for_final_certificate
        issuer=issuer-DN
        [store=y|n] (store the new cert in on the token, default=n)
        [outlabel=certificate label]
        [format=pem|der] (certificate output format)
        [subject=subject-DN] (override the CSR subject name)
        [altname=subjectAltName,subjectAltName...] (add subjectAltName )
        [keyusage=[critical:]usage,...] (add key usage bits)
        [eku=[critical:]EKU_Name,...] (add Extended Key Usage )
        [lifetime=number-hour|number-day|number-year]
        [token=token[:manuf[:serial]]]
signcsr keystore=file
        signkey=filename
        csr=CSR_filename
        serial=serial_number_hex_string_for_final_certificate
        outcert=filename_for_final_certificate
        issuer=issuer-DN
        [dir=directory-path]
        [format=pem|der] (certificate output format)
        [subject=subject-DN] (override the CSR subject name)
        [altname=subjectAltName,subjectAltName...] (add a subjectAltName)
        [keyusage=[critical:]usage,...] (add key usage bits)
        [lifetime=number-hour|number-day|number-year]
        [eku=[critical:]EKU_ Name,...] (add Extended Key Usage)
tokens

The format for the tokens subcommand is as follows:


pktool tokens

The tokens subcommand lists all visible PKCS#11 tokens. The default token (keystore) is listed even when the meta slot is enabled. Moreover, when the meta slot is enabled, or when there are more than two tokens present, the metaslot will also be presented as a virtual token in the list.

rfc2986attr=y | n

Specifies whether to encode 'attributes' as an empty ASN.1 construct 'SET OF' or not. The valid values are: y and n. The default value is y indicating that pktool adheres to PKCS#10 standard (RFC 2986). Some old broken certificate authorities may require specifying n.

-?

The format for the rfc2986attr=y | n subcommand is as follows:


pktool -?
pktool --help

The –? option displays usage and help information. –help is a synonym for –?.

Usage

The pktool subcommands support the following options:

altname=[critical:]subjectAltName,subjectAltName...

Subject Alternative Names the certificate. The argument that follows the altname option should be in the form of tag=value. Valid tags are IP, DNS, EMAIL, URI, DN, KRB, UPN, and RID. The SubjectAltName extension is marked as critical if the altname string is pre-pended with the word critical.

The critical flag is shared by all the altnames, and should be placed at the beginning of the first subject alternative name.

The delimiter between altname tags (for example, IP, EMAIL, DN, and so forth) isa comma (,). The delimiter between components in the DN type is a semicolon (;).

Example 1: Add an IP address to the subjectAltName extension. altname="IP=1.2.3.4" Example 2: Add an email address to the subjectAltName extension, and mark it as being critical. altname="critical:EMAIL=first.last@company.com"

Example 3: Add multiple subject alternative names IP address, email address and distinguished name to the subjectAltName extension, and mark it as being critical.

altname="critical:IP=1.2.3.4,EMAIL=first.last@company.com,\
DN=C=US;O=Oracle;OU=Security;CN=John Smith"
currlabel=token label

This option is only used by the inittoken command. This is used to locate the default token that is being initialized. See the token option for details about the format of the token name to be used.

curve=Elliptic_Curve_Name

This option is for specifying the Elliptic Curve parameters to be used when generating an X.509 certificate or certificate signing request or when generating an Elliptic Curve keypair.

The following named curves are supported:


secp112r1, secp112r2, secp128r1, secp128r2, secp160k1
secp160r1, secp160r2, secp192k1, secp192r1, secp224k1

c2pnb208w1, c2tnb239v1, c2tnb239v2, c2tnb239v3, c2pnb272w1
c2pnb304w1, c2tnb359v1, c2pnb368w1, c2tnb431r1, prime192v2
prime192v3

The list of named curves can also be seen by using the listcurves option with the gencert, gencsr, or genkeypair subcommands.

dir=directory_path

Specifies the OpenSSL keystore directory where the requested object is stored. For the signcsr subcommand when it applies to the file based keystore, this option specifies the directory where the issuer of the certificate exists, and the default is current directory.

eku=[critical:]EKU_Name,[critical:]EKU_Name, ...]

Specifies the extended key usage X.509v3 extension values to add to the certificate or certificate request.

Specify EKU_Name as one of the following: serverAuth, clientAuth, codeSigning, emailProtection, ipsecEndSystem, ipsecTunnel, ipsecUser, timeStamping, OCSPSigning, KPClientAuth, KPKdc, or scLogon.

An example is:

eku=KPClientAuth,clientAuth
extractable=y | n

Specifies the resulting symmetric key in the PKCS#11 token is extractable or not extractable. The valid values are: y and n. The default value is y.

format=pem | der | pkcs12

For the gencert subcommand, this option only applies to the file based keystore such as OpenSSL. It is used to specify the output format of the key or certificate file to be created. The valid formats are: pem or der. The default format is pem.

For the gencsr subcommand, this option specifies the output encoded format of the CSR file. The valid formats are: pem or der. The default format is pem.

hash=md5 | sha1 | sha224 | sha256 | sha384 | sha512

For the gencert and gencsr subcommands, this option allows the caller to specify the hash algorithm to be use for generating the X.509 certificate signature. This can be used when creating EC or RSA based certificates by using the PKCS#11 keystores. Elliptic Curve support is not available when using the OpenSSL file-based keystore.

infile=input-fn

Specifies the certificate filename for list and delete subcommands when objtype=cert and keystore=file. For the import subcommand, this option specifies the filename to be imported. Specifies the input CRL filename for list, delete and import subcommands when objtype=crl.

issuer=issuer-DN

Specifies the issuer of a certificate.

keylen=key-size

Specifies the size (bits) of the private or symmetric key to generate.

For the gencert and gencsr subcommands, the default key length is 2048 bits.

For the genkey subcommand, the minimum and maximum bits of the symmetric key to generate using AES algorithm are 128 and 256. Using the ARCFOUR algorithm, the minimum and maximum bits are 8 and 2048. The minimum bits for a generic secret key is 8 and the maximum bits is arbitrary. The default key length for the AES, ARCFOUR or generic secret keys is 128. For a DES key or a 3DES key, the key length is fixed and this option is ignored if specified.

keystore=pkcs11 | file

Specifies the type of the underlying keystore: PKCS#11 token or file-based plugin.

keytype=rsa | dsa | ec | aes | arcfour | des | 3des | generic

Specifies the type of the private or symmetric key to generate.

For the gencert and gencsr subcommands, the valid private key types are: rsa, ec, or dsa. The default key type is rsa.

For the genkey subcommand, the valid symmetric key types are: aes, arcfour, des, 3des, or generic. The default key type is aes.

 keyusage=[critical:]usage,usage,usage,...
Key Usage strings:
* digitalSignature
* nonRepudiation
* keyEncipherment
* dataEncipherment
* keyAgreement
* keyCertSign
* cRLSign
* encipherOnly
* decipherOnly

Example 1: Set the KeyUsage so that the cert (or csr) can be used for signing and verifying data other than certificates or CRLs (digitalSignature) and also can be used for encrypting and decrypting data other than cryptographic keys (dataEncipherment). keyusage=digitalSignature,dataEncipherment

Example 2: The same as above (Example 1), but with the critical bit set. keyusage=critical:digitalSignature,dataEncipherment

keyvalue=y | n

This option displays the key value in hex format for the symmetric keys in the file-based and PKCS#11 keystores. The valid values are y and n. The default value is n.

label=key-label | cert-label

For the gencert subcommand, this option specifies the label of the private key and self-signed certificate in the PKCS#11 token.

For the gencsr subcommand, this option specifies the label of the private key in the PKCS#11 token.

For the list subcommand, this option specifies the label of the X.509 Certificate (when objtype=cert) or the private key (when objtype=key) in the PKCS#11 token to refine the list.

For the delete subcommand, this option specifies the label of the X.509 Certificate (when objtype=cert) or the private key (when objtype=key) to delete a designated object from the PKCS#11 token.

listcurves

This causes the list of supported Elliptic Curve names to be displayed. This option is only available with the gencert, gencsr, or genkeypair subcommands.

lifetime=number-hour|number-day|number-year

Specifies the validity period a certificate is valid. The certificate life time can be specified by number-hour, number-day, or number-year. Only one format can be specified. The default is 1-year. Examples of this option might be: lifetime=1-hour, lifetime=2-day, lifetime=3-year

newlabel=token label

This option is only used by the inittoken command. This is used to change the label assigned to the token that is being initialized. See the token option for details about the format of the token name to be used.

nickname=cert-nickname

For the PKCS#11 token, this can be used as an alternative to the 'label' option for the gencert command.

objtype=cert | key | crl

Specifies the class of the object: cert, key, or crl. For the download subcommand, if this option is not specified, default to crl.

objtype=public | private | both

Specifies the type of object: private object, public object, or both. This option only applies to list and delete subcommands for the PKCS#11 token when objtype=key is specified. The default value is public.

For the list subcommand, the label option can be combined with this option to further refine the list of keys. For the delete subcommand, this option can used to narrow the keys to be deleted to only public, or private ones. Alternately, the label option can be omitted to indicate that all public, private, or both type of keys are to be deleted. The use of public, private and both as choices for the objtype parameter are only applicable with the PKCS#11 keystore in order to maintain compatibility with earlier versions of the pktool command.

outcert=cert-fn

Specifies the output certificate filename to write to. This option is required for the file based plugin such as OpenSSL. Option outkey=key-fn is required with this option.

outcrl=output-crl-fn

Specifies the output CRL filename to write to.

outcsr=csr-fn

Specifies the output CSR filename to write to.

outfile=output-fn

For the export subcommand, this option specifies the output filename to be created. For the import subcommand, this option specifies the output filename of the certificate or CRL. It only applies to the file based plugin such as OpenSSL. For the download subcommand, if this option is not specified, the downloaded file name is the basename of the URL string.

outformat=pem | der | pkcs12

For the import subcommand, this option specifies the output format of the certificate or key that is extracted from a specified PKCS#12 file into the file based plugin, The valid values are: pem or der. The default is pem . When importing a CRL to the CRL file based keystore, this option specifies the output format of the CRL. The valid values are: pem or der. The default is der. For the export subcommand, this option specifies the format of the specified output file to be created. The supported formats are: pem, der or pkcs12. The default is pkcs12.

outkey=key-fn

Specifies the output private key filename to which to write. This option is only required when using the files keystore.

print=y | n

This option is used in the genkey subcommand and it applies to the PKCS11 and file-based keystores. If print=y, the genkey subcommand prints out the key value of the generated key in a single line of hex. The default value is n. For the PKCS11 keystore, if a symmetric key is created with sensitive=y or extractable=n, the key value is not displayed, even the print option is set to y. The key is still created, but a warning like cannot reveal the key value is issued.

sensitive=y | n

Specifies the resulting symmetric key in the PKCS#11 token is sensitive or not sensitive. The valid values are: y and n. The default value is n.

serial=hex-serial-number

Specifies a unique serial number for a certificate. The serial number must be specified as a hex value. Example: 0x0102030405060708090a0b0c0d0e0f

slotid=slot number

Specifies the ID of the slot that interfaces with the token. The slotid can change. This could happen if a token provider is modified, added, or removed with the cryptoadm command. For more information, see the cryptoadm(8) man page.

For that reason, it is preferable to use label= instead of slotid= to identify a token provider. The token label is shown under the "Token Name" column in the pktool tokens output.

subject=subject-DN

Specifies a particular certificate owner for a certificate or certificate request. An example subject= setting might be:


subject=O=Sun Microsystems Inc., \ 
OU=Solaris Security Technologies Group, \
L=Ashburn, ST=VA, C=US, CN=John Smith
token=token[:manuf[:serial]]

When a token label contains trailing spaces, this option does not require them to be typed as a convenience to the user.

Colon separate token identification string token:manuf:serial. If any of the parts have a literal : char then it needs to be escaped using a backslash (\). If no : is found then the entire string (up to 32 chars) is taken as the token label. If only one : is found then the string is the token label and the manufacturer. When keystore=pkcs11 is specified, default to pkcs11_softtoken if this option is not specified.

usertype=user | so

Specifies the type of user for which the setpin command is being performed. The default is for a standard user, but so can be specified in order to set the PIN for the security officer of the token.

url=url_string

Specifies the URL to download a CRL or a certificate file.

http_proxy=proxy_str

Specifies the proxy server hostname and port number. The format can be either http://hostname[:port] or hostname[:port]. If this option is not specified, the download subcommand checks the http_proxy environment variable. The command line option has a higher priority than the environment variable.
