This module manages OpenSSL.

Class openssl

Make sure openssl is installed:

include ::openssl

Specify openssl and ca-certificates package versions:

class { '::openssl':
  package_ensure         => latest,
  ca_certificates_ensure => latest,
}

Create certificates (see the x509 defined type):

class { '::openssl::certificates':
  x509_certs => { '/path/to/certificate.crt' => { ensure      => 'present',
                                                  password    => 'j(D$',
                                                  template    => '/other/path/to/template.cnf',
                                                  private_key => '/there/is/my/private.key',
                                                  days        => 4536,
                                                  force       => false,},
                  '/a/other/certificate.crt' => { ensure      => 'present', },
                }
}

Specify openssl and compat package

class { '::openssl':
  package_name  => ['openssl', 'openssl-compat', ],
}

Types and providers

This module provides three types and associated providers to manage SSL keys and certificates.

In every case, not providing the password (or setting it to undef, which is the default) means that the private key won't be encrypted with any symmetric cipher so it is completely unprotected.

dhparam

This type allows to generate Diffie Hellman parameters.

Simple usage:

openssl::dhparam { '/path/to/dhparam.pem': }

Advanced options:

openssl::dhparam { '/path/to/dhparam.pem':
  size => 2048,
}

ssl_pkey

This type allows to generate SSL private keys.

Simple usage:

ssl_pkey { '/path/to/private.key': }

Advanced options:

ssl_pkey { '/path/to/private.key':
  ensure   => 'present',
  password => 'j(D$',
}

x509_cert

This type allows to generate SSL certificates from a private key. You need to deploy a template file (templates/cert.cnf.erb is an example).

Simple usage:

x509_cert { '/path/to/certificate.crt': }

Advanced options:

x509_cert { '/path/to/certificate.crt':
  ensure      => 'present',
  password    => 'j(D$',
  template    => '/other/path/to/template.cnf',
  private_key => '/there/is/my/private.key',
  days        => 4536,
  force       => false,
  subscribe   => '/other/path/to/template.cnf',
}

x509_request

This type allows to generate SSL certificate signing requests from a private key. You need to deploy a template file (templates/cert.cnf.erb is an example).

Simple usage:

x509_request { '/path/to/request.csr': }

Advanced options:

x509_request { '/path/to/request.csr':
  ensure      => 'present',
  password    => 'j(D$',
  template    => '/other/path/to/template.cnf',
  private_key => '/there/is/my/private.key',
  force       => false,
  subscribe   => '/other/path/to/template.cnf',
}

cert_file

This type controls a file containing a serialized X.509 certificate. It accepts the source in either PEM or DER format and stores it in the desired serialization format to the file.

cert_file { '/path/to/certs/cacert_root1.pem':
  ensure => present,
  source => 'http://www.cacert.org/certs/root_X0F.der',
  format => pem,
}

Attributes:

  • path (namevar): path to the file where the certificate should be stored
  • ensure: present or absent
  • source: the URL the certificate should be downloaded from
  • format: the storage format for the certificate file (pem or der)

Definitions

openssl::certificate::x509

This definition is a wrapper around the ssl_pkey, x509_cert and x509_request types. It generates a certificate template, then generates the private key, certificate and certificate signing request and sets the owner of the files.

Simple usage:

openssl::certificate::x509 { 'foo':
  country      => 'CH',
  organization => 'Example.com',
  commonname   => $fqdn,
}

Advanced options:

openssl::certificate::x509 { 'foo':
  ensure       => present,
  country      => 'CH',
  organization => 'Example.com',
  commonname   => $fqdn,
  state        => 'Here',
  locality     => 'Myplace',
  unit         => 'MyUnit',
  altnames     => ['a.com', 'b.com', 'c.com'],
  extkeyusage  => ['serverAuth', 'clientAuth', 'any_other_option_per_openssl'],
  email        => 'contact@foo.com',
  days         => 3456,
  base_dir     => '/var/www/ssl',
  owner        => 'www-data',
  group        => 'www-data',
  password     => 'j(D$',
  force        => false,
  cnf_tpl      => 'my_module/cert.cnf.erb'
}

openssl::export::pkcs12

This definition generates a pkcs12 file:

openssl::export::pkcs12 { 'foo':
  ensure   => 'present',
  basedir  => '/path/to/dir',
  pkey     => '/here/is/my/private.key',
  cert     => '/there/is/the/cert.crt',
  in_pass  => 'my_pkey_password',
  out_pass => 'my_pkcs12_password',
}

openssl::export::pem_cert

This definition exports PEM certificates from a pkcs12 container:

openssl::export::pem_cert { 'foo':
  ensure   => 'present',
  pfx_cert => '/here/is/my/certstore.pfx',
  pem_cert => '/here/is/my/cert.pem',
  in_pass  => 'my_pkcs12_password',
}

This definition exports PEM certificates from a DER certificate:

openssl::export::pem_cert { 'foo':
  ensure   => 'present',
  der_cert => '/here/is/my/certstore.der',
  pem_cert => '/here/is/my/cert.pem',
}

openssl::export::pem_key

This definition exports PEM key from a pkcs12 container:

openssl::export::pem_key { 'foo':
  ensure   => 'present',
  pfx_cert => '/here/is/my/certstore.pfx',
  pem_key  => '/here/is/my/private.key',
  in_pass  => 'my_pkcs12_password',
  out_pass => 'my_pkey_password',
}

openssl::dhparam

This definition creates a dhparam PEM file:

Simple usage:

openssl::dhparam { '/path/to/dhparam.pem': }

which is equivalent to:

openssl::dhparam { '/path/to/dhparam.pem':
  ensure => 'present',
  size   => 512,
  owner  => 'root',
  group  => 'root',
  mode   => '0644',
}

Advanced usage:

openssl::dhparam { '/path/to/dhparam.pem':
  ensure => 'present',
  size   => 2048,
  owner  => 'www-data',
  group  => 'adm',
  mode   => '0640',
}

Functions

cert_aia_caissuers

The function parses a X509 certificate for the authorityInfoAccess extension and return with the URL found as caIssuers, or nil if no URL or extension found. Invoking as deferred function, this can be used to download the issuer certificate:

  file { '/ssl/certs/caissuer.crt':
    ensure => file,
    source => Deferred('cert_aia_caissuers', ["/etc/ssl/certs/${facts['networking']['fqdn']}.crt"]),
  }
