#50548 No option to create a private key/CSR with dsconf/Cockpit
Opened 10 months ago by mmuehlfeldrh. Modified 4 months ago

Issue Description

There's no way to create a private key and a CSR with dsconf/Cockpit.
However, features for importing a certificate exists, but DS also requires the private key in the NSS database to use the certificate.

Package Version and Platform



Users must create the private key and then the CSR with certutil in DS's NSS database (same as in the past).
Then the CSR can be used to request a certificate from the CA and, later, the certificate can be imported with dsconf/Cockpit.

Another (related) missing feature is adding a CRL to the NSS database.

Yeah, I always wanted dsconf to have the private key handling available, but I think it was implemented differently with the webui. Anyway, this would be good to have.

@mhonek I think we may want a seperate issue for CRL handling?
