SYNOPSIScertmonger [-s|-S] [-b TIMEOUT|-B] [-n|-f] [-d LEVEL] [-p FILE]
DESCRIPTIONThe certmonger daemon monitors certificates for impending expiration, and can optionally refresh soon-to-be-expired certificates with the help of a CA. If told to, it can drive the entire enrollment process from key generation through enrollment and refresh.
The daemon provides a control interface via the org.fedorahosted.certmonger service, with which client tools such as getcert(1) interact.
- Listen on the session bus rather than the system bus.
- Listen on the system bus rather than the session bus. This is the default.
- -b TIMEOUT
- Behave as a bus-activated service: if there are no certificates to be monitored or obtained, and no requests received within TIMEOUT seconds, exit.
- Don't behave as a bus-activated service. This is the default.
- Don't fork, and log messages to stderr rather than syslog.
- Do fork, and log messages to syslog rather than stderr. This is the default.
- -d LEVEL
- Set debugging level. Higher values produce more debugging output. Implies -n.
- -p FILE
Store the daemon's process ID in the named file.
FILESThe set of certificates being monitored or signed is tracked using files stored under /var/lib/certmonger/requests, or in a directory named by the CERTMONGER_REQUESTS_DIR environment variable.
The set of known CAs is tracked using files stored under /var/lib/certmonger/cas, or in a directory named by the CERTMONGER_CAS_DIR environment variable.
Temporary files will be stored in "/var/run/certmonger", or in the directory named by the CERTMONGER_TMPDIR environment variable if that value was not given at compile time.
BUGSPlease file tickets for any that you find at https://fedorahosted.org/certmonger/
