crypto_certs(4)                  File Formats                  crypto_certs(4)

       crypto_certs  -  directory  for  certificate  files for Solaris Crypto-
       graphic Framework



       The /etc/crypto/certs directory contains ASN.1 BER or PEM encoded  cer-
       tificate files for use by the Solaris Cryptographic Framework.

       A  default installation contains only two certificates. The CA certifi-
       cate is the trust anchor for all other certificates. The SUNWosnet cer-
       tificate contains the certificate use to sign the Solaris user and ker-
       nel cryptographic plug-ins.

       Additional certificates my be installed  by  third-party  cryptographic
       providers.  They  should  either  be  copied  to  /etc/crypto/certs  or
       included in the package that delivers the provider.

       Only certificates that are issued by the CA certificate are accepted by
       the  Solaris  Cryptographic Framework. This restriction is in place due
       to US Export Law on the export of open cryptographic interfaces at  the
       time of shipping this revision of the product.
