NSEQ(1)				    OpenSSL			       NSEQ(1)

NAME
       openssl-nseq, nseq - create or examine a	Netscape certificate sequence

SYNOPSIS
       openssl nseq [-help] [-in filename] [-out filename] [-toseq]

DESCRIPTION
       The nseq	command	takes a	file containing	a Netscape certificate
       sequence	and prints out the certificates	contained in it	or takes a
       file of certificates and	converts it into a Netscape certificate
       sequence.

OPTIONS
       -help
	   Print out a usage message.

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

       -out filename
	   Specifies the output	filename or standard output by default.

       -toseq
	   Normally a Netscape certificate sequence will be input and the
	   output is the certificates contained	in it. With the	-toseq option
	   the situation is reversed: a	Netscape certificate sequence is
	   created from	a file of certificates.

EXAMPLES
       Output the certificates in a Netscape certificate sequence

	openssl	nseq -in nseq.pem -out certs.pem

       Create a	Netscape certificate sequence

	openssl	nseq -in certs.pem -toseq -out nseq.pem

NOTES
       The PEM encoded form uses the same headers and footers as a
       certificate:

	-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
	-----END CERTIFICATE-----

       A Netscape certificate sequence is a Netscape specific format that can
       be sent to browsers as an alternative to	the standard PKCS#7 format
       when several certificates are sent to the browser: for example during
       certificate enrollment.	It is used by Netscape certificate server for
       example.

BUGS
       This program needs a few	more options: like allowing DER	or PEM input
       and output files	and allowing multiple certificate files	to be used.
