       certwatch - generate SSL certificate expiry warnings

       certwatch [OPTION...] filename

       The certwatch program is used to issue warning mail when an SSL
       certificate is about to expire.

       The program has two modes of operation: normal mode and quiet mode. In
       normal mode, the certificate given by the filename argument is
       examined, and a warning email is issued to standard output if the
       certificate is outside its validity period, or approaching expiry. If
       the certificate cannot be found, or any errors occur whilst parsing the
       certificate, the certificate is ignored and no output is produced. In
       quiet mode, no output is given, but the exit status can still be used.

       The certificate can be specified by its nickname or by a path to the
       containing file.

       --quiet, -q
	   Enable quiet mode; no output is produced whether the certificate is
	   expired or not

       --period days, -p days
	   Specify the number of days within which an expiry warning will be
	   produced; default is 30. Expiry warnings are always produced if, on
	   the day of invocation, the certificate is not yet valid, has
	   already expired, or is due to expire either that day or the
	   following day.

       --address address, -a address
	   Specify the address used in the To field of the warning e-mail
	   issued if quiet mode is not enabled. The default is root.

       --directory cert-directory, -d cert-directory
	   Specify the database directory containing the certificate and key
	   database files. The default is yet to be determined.

       The exit code indicates the state of the certificate:

	   The certificate is outside its validity period, or approaching

	   The certificate is inside its validity period, or could not be

       The certwatch program is run daily by crond from the file
       /etc/cron.daily/certwatch to generate warning mail concerning the
       imminent expiry of SSL certificates configured for use in the Apache
       HTTP server. These warnings can be disabled by adding the line:
       NOCERTWATCH=yes to the file /etc/sysconfig/httpd. Additional options to
       pass to certwatch can be specified in that file in the CERTWATCH_OPTS
       environment variable.

       /etc/cron.daily/certwatch, /etc/sysconfig/httpd
