NSEQ(1)				    OpenSSL			       NSEQ(1)

NAME
       nseq - create or	examine	a netscape certificate sequence

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

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

COMMAND	OPTIONS
       -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 out-
	   put 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 certifi-
       cate:

	-----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 ex-
       ample.

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.
