Configuration Overview

Overview

A number of OpenSSL commands (for example, req and ca) take a -config parameter that specifies the location of the openssl configuration file. This section provides a brief description of the format of the configuration file and how it applies to the req and ca commands. An example configuration file is shown at the end of this section.

Structure of the OpenSSL configuration file

The openssl.cnf configuration file consists of a number of sections that specify a series of default values that are used by the openssl commands.
