The certmonger daemon monitors certificates for impending expiration,
and can optionally refresh soon-to-be-expired certificates with the
help of a CA. If told to, it can drive the entire enrollment process
from key generation through enrollment and refresh.
The daemon provides a control interface via the org.fedorahosted.cert‐
monger service, with which client tools such as getcert(1) interact.
OPTIONS-s Listen on the session bus rather than the system bus.
-S Listen on the system bus rather than the session bus. This is
Behave as a bus-activated service: if there are no certificates
to be monitored or obtained, and no requests received within

-n Don't fork, and log messages to stderr rather than syslog.
-f Do fork, and log messages to syslog rather than stderr. This is
Set debugging level. Higher values produce more debugging out‐
put. Implies -n.
Store the daemon's process ID in the named file.
-F Force NSS to be initialized in FIPS mode. The default behavior
is to heed the setting stored in /proc/sys/crypto/fips_enabled.
The set of certificates being monitored or signed is tracked using
files stored under /var/lib/certmonger/requests, or in a directory
named by the CERTMONGER_REQUESTS_DIR environment variable.
The set of known CAs is tracked using files stored under /var/lib/cert‐
monger/cas, or in a directory named by the CERTMONGER_CAS_DIR environ‐
Temporary files will be stored in "/var/run/certmonger", or in the
directory named by the CERTMONGER_TMPDIR environment variable if that
value was not given at compile time.
