Non-interactive creation of SSL certificate requests

Solution 1:

you are missing two part:

the subject line, which can be called as

-subj "/C=US/ST=New Sweden/L=Stockholm /O=.../OU=.../CN=.../emailAddress=..."
  • replacing ... with value, X= being X509 code (Organisation/OrganisationUnit/etc ... )

the password value, which can be called as

-passout pass:client11
-passin  pass:client11
  • which give an output/input password

my calling for new key looks like

openssl genrsa -aes256 -out lib/client1.key -passout pass:client11 1024
openssl rsa -in lib/client1.key -passin pass:client11 -out lib/client1-nokey.key

openssl req -new -key lib/client1.key -subj req -new \
    -passin pass:client11 -out lib/client1.csr \
    -subj "/C=US/ST=New Sweden/L=Stockholm/O=.../OU=.../CN=.../emailAddress=..."

(now that I see it, there is two -new ... )

Solution 2:

Check for -batch option as described in the official docs.
