Description (last modified by mitchb)

Pony should allow users to request CSRs for their hostnames. We could even have it generate the CSR automatically, although there are some security implications here.

We may want to encourage people to use the * certificate instead, as it is GeoTrust?-signed for them for free.

But on the flip side, this would be a good way to get people with outside domain names to know that they can use SSL with their sites -- we should have a documented and obvious way to ask scripts for a CSR.

There is now a backend through which the pony user can request CSRs (r2834):

/bin/sudo /etc/pki/tls/gencsr-pony LOCKER HOSTNAME [HOSTNAME…]

Anyone want to give it a frontend?

I wrote a frontend - it is available at

Currently the command used to generate certificates is echo instead of sudo but other functionality should work.

Can anyone take a look?

Now with certificate submission as well. Code available at

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
