.SH "DESCRIPTION"
make-ssl-cert is a simple debconf to openssl wrapper to create self-signed
certificates.
It requires a source template (Ex: /usr/share/ssl-cert/ssleay.cnf)
and it will place the new generated certificate in the specified
output file.
.br
Invoked with "generate-default-snakeoil", it will generate
/etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem and /etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key.
.SH OPTIONS
A summary of options are included below.
