The following are the OpenSSL standard commands.

asn1parse 

Parse an ASN.1 sequence

ca 

Certificate Authority (CA) Management

ciphers 

Cipher Suite Description Determination

crl 

Certificate Revocation List (CRL) Management

crl2pkcs7 

CRL to PKCS#7 Conversion

dHParam 

Generation and Management of Diffie-Hellman Parameters

dsa 

DSA Data Management

dsaparam 

DSA Parameter Generation

rand 

Generate pseudo-random bytes

req 

X.509 Certificate Signing Request (CSR) Management

rsa 

RSA Data Management

rsautl

s_client 

Implements a generic SSL/TLS client that can establish a transparent connection to a remote server speaking SSL/TLS. This command, however, is intended for testing purposes only and provides only rudimentary interface functionality. Internally, however, it uses most of the functionality of the OpenSSL ssl library.

s_server 

Implements a generic SSL/TLS server that accepts connections from remote clients speaking SSL/TLS. It is intended for testing purposes only and provides only rudimentary interface functionality. Internally, however, it uses most of the functionality of the OpenSSL ssl library. It provides both its own command-line oriented protocol for testing SSL functions and a simple HTTP response facility to emulate an SSL/TLS-aware web server.

s_time 

SSL Connection Timer

sess_id 

SSL Session Data Management

smime 

S/MIME mail processing

speed 

Algorithm Speed Measurement

spkac 

Signed public key and challenge

verify 

X.509 Certificate Verification

version 

OpenSSL Version Information

x509 

X.509 Certificate Data Management
