Line 1: Line 1:
 +Use the verify option to verify certificates.
 +
 +<​code>​
 +openssl verify cert.pem
 +</​code>​
 +
 +If your local OpenSSL installation recognizes the certificate or its signing authority and everything else (dates, signing chain, etc.) checks out, you’ll get a simple OK message.
 +
 +<​code>​
 +$ openssl verify remote.site.pem
 +remote.site.pem:​ OK
 +</​code>​
 +
 +For this to work openssl needs to have access to the CA that issued the certificate. Otherwise you will get an error like:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +error 2 at 1 depth lookup:​unable to get issuer certificate
 +</​code>​
 +
 +To import CA certificates see here: [[Import CA certificates for openssl to use]]
