NSEQ(1)				    OpenSSL			       NSEQ(1)

NAME
       nseq - create or examine a netscape certificate sequence

SYNOPSIS
       openssl nseq [-in filename] [-out filename] [-toseq]

DESCRIPTION
       The nseq command takes a file containing a Netscape certificate
       sequence and prints out the certificates contained in it or takes a
       file of certificates and converts it into a Netscape certificate
       sequence.

COMMAND OPTIONS
       -in filename
	   This specifies the input filename to read or standard input if this
	   option is not specified.

       -out filename
	   specifies the output filename or standard output by default.

       -toseq
	   normally a Netscape certificate sequence will be input and the out‐
	   put is the certificates contained in it. With the -toseq option the
	   situation is reversed: a Netscape certificate sequence is created
	   from a file of certificates.

EXAMPLES
       Output the certificates in a Netscape certificate sequence

	openssl nseq -in nseq.pem -out certs.pem

       Create a Netscape certificate sequence

	openssl nseq -in certs.pem -toseq -out nseq.pem

NOTES
       The PEM encoded form uses the same headers and footers as a certifi‐
       cate:

	-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
	-----END CERTIFICATE-----

       A Netscape certificate sequence is a Netscape specific form that can be
       sent to browsers as an alternative to the standard PKCS#7 format when
       several certificates are sent to the browser: for example during cer‐
       tificate enrollment.  It is used by Netscape certificate server for
       example.

BUGS
       This program needs a few more options: like allowing DER or PEM input
       and output files and allowing multiple certificate files to be used.
