NSEQ(1)                             OpenSSL                            NSEQ(1)

       nseq - create or examine a netscape certificate sequence

       ooppeennssssll nnsseeqq [--iinn ffiilleennaammee] [--oouutt ffiilleennaammee] [--ttoosseeqq]

       The nnsseeqq 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

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

       --oouutt ffiilleennaammee
           specifies the output filename or standard output by default.

           normally a Netscape certificate sequence will be input and the out-
           put is the certificates contained in it. With the --ttoosseeqq option the
           situation is reversed: a Netscape certificate sequence is created
           from a file of certificates.

       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

       The PPEEMM encoded form uses the same headers and footers as a certifi-

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

       A Netscape certificate sequence is a Netscape specific form 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 cer-
       tificate enrollment.  It is used by Netscape certificate server for

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