CRL(1)                              OpenSSL                             CRL(1)

       crl - CRL utility

       ooppeennssssll ccrrll [--iinnffoorrmm PPEEMM||DDEERR] [--oouuttffoorrmm PPEEMM||DDEERR] [--tteexxtt] [--iinn ffiilleennaammee]
       [--oouutt ffiilleennaammee] [--nnoooouutt] [--hhaasshh] [--iissssuueerr] [--llaassttuuppddaattee] [--nneexxttuuppddaattee]
       [--CCAAffiillee ffiillee] [--CCAAppaatthh ddiirr]

       The ccrrll command processes CRL files in DER or PEM format.

       --iinnffoorrmm DDEERR||PPEEMM
           This specifies the input format. DDEERR format is DER encoded CRL
           structure. PPEEMM (the default) is a base64 encoded version of the DER
           form with header and footer lines.

       --oouuttffoorrmm DDEERR||PPEEMM
           This specifies the output format, the options have the same meaning
           as the --iinnffoorrmm option.

       --iinn ffiilleennaammee
           This specifies the input filename to read from or standard input if
           this option is not specified.

       --oouutt ffiilleennaammee
           specifies the output filename to write to or standard output by

           print out the CRL in text form.

           don't output the encoded version of the CRL.

           output a hash of the issuer name. This can be use to lookup CRLs in
           a directory by issuer name.

           output the issuer name.

           output the lastUpdate field.

           output the nextUpdate field.

       --CCAAffiillee ffiillee
           verify the signature on a CRL by looking up the issuing certificate
           in ffiillee

       --CCAAppaatthh ddiirr
           verify the signature on a CRL by looking up the issuing certificate
           in ddiirr. This directory must be a standard certificate directory:
           that is a hash of each subject name (using xx550099 --hhaasshh) should be
           linked to each certificate.

       The PEM CRL format uses the header and footer lines:

        -----BEGIN X509 CRL-----
        -----END X509 CRL-----

       Convert a CRL file from PEM to DER:

        openssl crl -in crl.pem -outform DER -out crl.der

       Output the text form of a DER encoded certificate:

        openssl crl -in crl.der -text -noout

       Ideally it should be possible to create a CRL using appropriate options
       and files too.
