CRL2PKCS7(1)			    OpenSSL			  CRL2PKCS7(1)

NAME
       crl2pkcs7 - Create a PKCS#7 structure from a CRL	and certificates.

SYNOPSIS
       openssl crl2pkcs7 [-inform PEM|DER] [-outform PEM|DER] [-in filename]
       [-out filename] [-certfile filename] [-nocrl]

DESCRIPTION
       The crl2pkcs7 command takes an optional CRL and one or more
       certificates and	converts them into a PKCS#7 degenerate "certificates
       only" structure.

COMMAND	OPTIONS
       -inform DER|PEM
	   This	specifies the CRL input	format.	DER format is DER encoded CRL
	   structure.PEM (the default) is a base64 encoded version of the DER
	   form	with header and	footer lines.

       -outform	DER|PEM
	   This	specifies the PKCS#7 structure output format. DER format is
	   DER encoded PKCS#7 structure.PEM (the default) is a base64 encoded
	   version of the DER form with	header and footer lines.

       -in filename
	   This	specifies the input filename to	read a CRL from	or standard
	   input if this option	is not specified.

       -out filename
	   specifies the output	filename to write the PKCS#7 structure to or
	   standard output by default.

       -certfile filename
	   specifies a filename	containing one or more certificates in PEM
	   format.  All	certificates in	the file will be added to the PKCS#7
	   structure. This option can be used more than	once to	read
	   certificates	form multiple files.

       -nocrl
	   normally a CRL is included in the output file. With this option no
	   CRL is included in the output file and a CRL	is not read from the
	   input file.

EXAMPLES
       Create a	PKCS#7 structure from a	certificate and	CRL:

	openssl	crl2pkcs7 -in crl.pem -certfile	cert.pem -out p7.pem

       Creates a PKCS#7	structure in DER format	with no	CRL from several
       different certificates:

	openssl	crl2pkcs7 -nocrl -certfile newcert.pem
	       -certfile demoCA/cacert.pem -outform DER	-out p7.der

NOTES
       The output file is a PKCS#7 signed data structure containing no signers
       and just	certificates and an optional CRL.

       This utility can	be used	to send	certificates and CAs to	Netscape as
       part of the certificate enrollment process. This	involves sending the
       DER encoded output as MIME type application/x-x509-user-cert.

       The PEM encoded form with the header and	footer lines removed can be
       used to install user certificates and CAs in MSIE using the Xenroll
       control.
