PK12util today can do only two things: 1. import a cert chain from a .p12 file to a cert/key DB pair, or 2. export a cert chain from a cert/key DB pair to a .p12 file. We have no tool that will take a .p12 file and 3. list a summary of the file's contents, (e.g. 1 line or 2 per cert) 4. list all the certs in that file in detail 5. extract the certs from that file into separate cert files. Such a tool would be very helpful for support purposes.
This RFE requests several new features of pk12util. I now think that I should file separate bugs about each one. So, I have created bug 280602 about the detailed list of p12 file contents. I will shortly file bugs for the other 2 features as well.
pk12util now does list the contents, in detail. The cert extraction feature remains to be done. It should be a variant of the -l (list) feature.
Created attachment 256562 [details] [diff] [review] quickey 1st attempt I'll be reviewing this again before asking for a real review.
Neil, After speaking with you Friday, I wrote a patch that implemented the feature and attached it to bug 371468, and requested your review of that patch. Apparently you didn't notice that before writing your patch today. Please look at bug 371468, and the patch attached to it, and let me know which of the two patches you think is better, and why. Thanks.
Nelson, I like yours because it's more concise. The only functional difference between the two is that your version creates the files with "...| PR_TRUNCATE, 0600)" and mine with "..., 0660)". I'd change the filename, though, so it has "cert" in it somewhere.

Thanks for the review Neil. Committed on trunk. Checking in pk12util.c; new revision: 1.37; previous revision: 1.36
