This chapter describes a number of administrative and development
utilities that are provided with CDSA. Note that some of these programs
are typically called only from the CDSA initialization command file
unless new add-in modules are being provided.
The CDSA utility programs comprise the following:
- Generates digital certificates.
CDSA$ISSUER.EXE - Generates
the issuer key functions.
CDSA$MDS_INSTALL.EXE - Creates
the MDS database.
CDSA$MOD_INSTALL.EXE - Adds
entries to the MDS database.
CDSA$OUTPUT_ERROR.EXE - Translates
numeric CDSA error codes into text.
CDSA$REVOKE.EXE - Packages
certificates to be revoked for shipment back to the Certificate
Authority (HP OpenVMS).
CDSA$X5092XML.EXE - Extracts
the subject name from an X509 certificate.
The shortened program names listed in this chapter's Synopsis
sections are defined in the file SYS$MANAGER:CDSA$SYMBOLS.COM.
The following command should be added to the SYS$MANAGER:SYLOGIN.COM
file on the system where CDSA development work is being done:
If this command is not defined at the system level, individual
CDSA developers should add it to their personal LOGIN.COM file so
that they can use the shortened program names.
