ssl-admin.conf(5)	      File Formats Manual	     ssl-admin.conf(5)

NAME
       ssl-admin.conf -	configuration file for ssl-admin

DESCRIPTION
       The  file  ssl-admin.conf contains settings that	control	site- specific
       settings	for your default key size, length, and location	information.

       This configuration file is essentially a	called perl  script  with  the
       needed variables	assigned.

KEY INFORMATION
       KEY_SIZE	(num)
	      The length, in bits, for the default key size. A minimum of 1024
	      is recommended.  This option can be changed at run time.

       KEY_DAYS	(num)
	      The length, in days, for the default  period  a  certificate  is
	      valid  for.   365	 is  recommended  for web, mail, etc, servers.
	      3650 is recommended for VPN certificates.	 This  option  can  be
	      changed at run time.

       KEY_CN (str)
	      This  is the default Common Name for a certificate.  Leaving the
	      value empty is recommended.  This	option is always asked for  at
	      run time.

       KEY_CRL_LOC (str)
	      The  publicly  available	location for your CRL (Certificate Re-
	      vokation List).  At this time, ssl-admin does not	have the abil-
	      ity of sending the CRL to	another	system.	 This value simply al-
	      lows it to be set	within each  certificate.   This  string  must
	      start  with "URI:", and be followed with a standard URL. For ex-
	      ample, "URI:http://www.example.com/crl.pem"
