efikeygen  -  command line tool for generating keys to use for PE image


   efikeygen <[--ca | -C] [--self-sign | -S] | [--signer=nickname]>
          [--token=token | -t token]
          [--nickname=nickname | -n nickname]
          [--common-name=common name | -c common name]
          [--url=url | -u url]
          [--serial=serial | -s serial]


   efikeygen is a command line tool for generating keys  and  certificates
   to be used with pesign.  These are standard X.509 certificates, and can
   potentially be generated with any certificate creation tool.  efikeygen
   simply  sets  generates  keys with sensible options set for a key to be
   used for PE image signing.


   --ca   The certificate being generated is for a CA.

          The generated certificate is to be self signed.

          Nickname of  certificate  to  be  used  to  sign  the  generated

          Use the specified NSS token's certificate database.

          The nickname to use for the generated certificate.

          The  X.509  Common  Name  for  the  generated certificate.  This
          should be in rfc2253 syntax, i.e. "CN=John  Doe,OU=editing,O=New
          York Times,L=New York,ST=NY,C=US"

          Informational url regarding objects signed with this key.

   --serial=serial number
          Serial   number  for  use  with  this  key.   A  certificate  is
          identified by its signer and its serial number,   so  it's  best
          not to ever re-use this value with the same signer.  By default,
          this value will be generated using /dev/urandom  .   It  is  not
          recommended to use this option to override that.
