NAME
       openvas-mkcert -	Creates	a scanner certificate

SYNOPSIS
       openvas-mkcert [-q] [-f]

DESCRIPTION
       The  OpenVAS  Scanner  protects its communication with clients by using
       SSL. SSL	requires the scanner to	present	a certificate to  the  client,
       and the client can optionally present a certificate to the scanner.

       This script openvas-mkcert creates a certificate	authority (if none ex-
       ists already) and generates the scanner certificate.

OPTIONS
       -q quickly generates a new certificate, without asking any question

       -f force	overwriting of already existing	certificate files
