@bonzoesc Is there just some sort of primer on what all these acronyms mean
@mark i still have no idea what that acronym means
as i understand it, asn.1 is the serialization format that most x.509 things expect
@bonzoesc I thought there'd be an easy way to just output the certs. I'm so close but I need to convert the public key here from "BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY" to "BEGIN PRIVATE KEY"
This is my current boulder to roll up the hill
i'm not sure you can turn a public key into a cert without a bunch of extra information
@bonzoesc Well I can generate a cert... how easy is it to then get the X.509 public and private keys from that?
@mark the CN, O, OU, and C the form there asks for, plus the public key go into the cert body; the private key signs it, but doesn't get inserted into the cert (that'd defeat the point)
@bonzoesc Thank you!
@mark on the plus side that page has source to do the asn.1 stuff
