Sep 12, 2016

The following operations can be performed on "ssl rsakey":

create ssl rsakey

Generates an RSA key.

Synopsys

create ssl rsakey <keyFile> <bits> [-exponent ( 3 | F4 )] [-keyform ( DER | PEM )] [-des | -des3] {-password }

Arguments

keyFile

Name for and, optionally, path to the RSA key file. /nsconfig/ssl/ is the default path.

Maximum value: 63

bits

Size, in bits, of the RSA key.

Minimum value: 512

Maximum value: 4096

exponent

Public exponent for the RSA key. The exponent is part of the cipher algorithm and is required for creating the RSA key.

Possible values: 3, F4

Default value: F4

keyform

Format in which the RSA key file is stored on the appliance.

Possible values: DER, PEM

Default value: PEM

des

Encrypt the generated RSA key by using the DES algorithm. On the command line, you are prompted to enter the pass phrase (password) that is used to encrypt the key.

des3

Encrypt the generated RSA key by using the Triple-DES algorithm. On the command line, you are prompted to enter the pass phrase (password) that is used to encrypt the key.

password

Pass phrase to use for encryption if DES or DES3 option is selected.

Maximum value: 31

Example

create ssl rsakey /nsconfig/ssl/rsa1024.pem 1024 -exp F4
