DESCRIPTION

The cimcrl command provides a command line interface to manage X509 CRLs in the CRL store. The CRL store contains the CRLs used to revoke certificates in the CIM Server truststore. For more information on truststore operations see the cimtrust(8) command.

The add option of the cimcrl command adds an X509 CRL from the specified file to the CRL store. If a CRL for the specified issuer already exists in the CRL store, the CRL is replaced with the specified CRL.

The remove option of the cimcrl command removes the X509 CRL matching the specified issuer from the CRL store.

The list option of the cimcrl command lists the X509 CRLs in the CRL store. The list can be filtered by issuer.  

Options

cimcrl recognizes the following options:
-a
Adds a CRL to the truststore. If the specified file does not contain a valid X509 CRL an error message is returned and no action is taken. If the CRL for the specified issuer already exists in the CRL store, it is replaced with the CRL in the specified file
-r
Removes a CRL from the truststore. If no CRL exists for the specified issuer , an error message is returned and no action is taken.
-l
Displays the X509 CRLs in the truststore.
-f file

-i issuer
