Description of problem:
When I run "certutil -R" and supply an email address using the -y flag, I get an
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir /tmp/z
2. certutil -d /tmp/z -N
3. certutil -d /tmp/z -R -s 'cn=Nalin Dahyabhai' -a -o /tmp/z/nalin.req -y
I get this error message:
certutil -y: incorrect public exponent 0.Must be 3, 17, or 65537.
certutil would usually ask me to help it seed its RNG, and proceed as normally
The -y option is for the public exponent only, we wouldn't want to overload this meaning. The -R command honors the -S command extension options
-7 Create an email subject alt name extension
certutil -d /tmp/z -R -s 'cn=Nalin Dahyabhai' -a -o /tmp/z/nalin.req -s
firstname.lastname@example.org works as the reporter expected. Wouldn't this be the proper way?
Yep, looks like you're right -- the short-form ('-h') help output must be wrong.
Also, the documentation for the -7 -8 and -0 options are wrong or missing.

I don't know what the SSO-Password is, maybe you'd want to use a more obvious string.
Besides from that the changes in the patch seem to match the information in secuCommandFlag options_init, so r+
If you create a new patch, and your only change is a more descriptive string for SSO, my r+ shall still apply.
Kai, as you may recall, certutil has both a "short" and a "long" usage message,
obtained with certutil -h and certutil -H respectively. With this patch,
the short message describes certutil's -T option as:
Usage: certutil -T [-d certdir] [-P dbprefix] [-h token-name]
[-f pwfile] [-0 SSO-password]
and the long usage message describes it as:
-T Reset the Key database or token
-d certdir Cert database directory (default is ~/.netscape)
-P dbprefix Cert & Key database prefix
-h token-name Token to reset (default is internal)
-0 SSO-password Set token's Site Security Officer password
Do you think that SSO-password needs more explanation than that?

Nelson, thanks for the clarification, you're right, that seems sufficient.
