Question/ understanding

Post by nephilim75 » Thu Jun 02, 2016 5:59 pm


I just need a clearification and I hope you assist me with this.

What is the difference between:

Code: Select all

./pkitool --initca
and this:

Code: Select all

./build-ca OpenVPN
To me it looks like both of the commands creating ca.crt and ca.key in /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/keys. And do these commands depend on each other?

Kind regards

easy-rsa-2.2.2 / build-ca :

Code: Select all

"$EASY_RSA/pkitool" --interact --initca $*
they are the same thing ... :roll:
