NSEQ(1)                              OpenSSL                             NSEQ(1)



NAME
       openssl-nseq, nseq - create or examine a Netscape certificate sequence

SYNOPSIS
       openssl nseq [-help] [-in filename] [-out filename] [-toseq]

DESCRIPTION
       The nseq command takes a file containing a Netscape certificate sequence
       and prints out the certificates contained in it or takes a file of
       certificates and converts it into a Netscape certificate sequence.

OPTIONS
       -help
           Print out a usage message.

       -in filename
           This specifies the input filename to read or standard input if this
           option is not specified.

       -out filename
           Specifies the output filename or standard output by default.

       -toseq
           Normally a Netscape certificate sequence will be input and the output
           is the certificates contained in it. With the -toseq option the
           situation is reversed: a Netscape certificate sequence is created
           from a file of certificates.

EXAMPLES
       Output the certificates in a Netscape certificate sequence

        openssl nseq -in nseq.pem -out certs.pem

       Create a Netscape certificate sequence

        openssl nseq -in certs.pem -toseq -out nseq.pem

NOTES
       The PEM encoded form uses the same headers and footers as a certificate:

        -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
        -----END CERTIFICATE-----

       A Netscape certificate sequence is a Netscape specific format that can be
       sent to browsers as an alternative to the standard PKCS#7 format when
       several certificates are sent to the browser: for example during
       certificate enrollment.  It is used by Netscape certificate server for
       example.

BUGS
       This program needs a few more options: like allowing DER or PEM input and
       output files and allowing multiple certificate files to be used.
