Create certification autority (CA).

Create folder structure to hold certificates:

mkdir /opt/met-ca
mkdir /opt/met-ca/certs
mkdir /opt/met-ca/crl
mkdir /opt/met-ca/newcerts
mkdir /opt/met-ca/private
mkdir /opt/met-ca/requests
touch /opt/met-ca/index.txt
echo “01” > /opt/ca/serial
echo “01” > /opt/ca/crlnumber
chmod 700 /opt/ca

Create public and private autosigned keys of our own Certification Authority ( in the example is valid for 10 years ). We will need to specify certificate data, passworrd to crypt and the process will generate two files:

openssl req -config /etc/ssl/openssl.cnf -new -x509 -days 3650 -sha1 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout /opt/ca/private/ca.key -out /opt/ca/ca.crt

Change key grants:

chmod 600 /opt/met-ca/private/ca.key

Create apache certification

Create a pair of keys. We will need to specify password and certification data. Will be created the file key ( server.key ) and certification request (server.pem).

openssl req -new -sha1 -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout server.key -out server.pem 

With the CA should sign the certification request. Copy server.pem to certication request and sign.

openssl ca -config /etc/ssl/openssl.cnf -policy policy_anything -extensions [b]ssl_server[/b] -out requests/server-signed.pem -infiles requests/server.pem

Apache will be waiting a PEM format, is mandatory convert to this format:

openssl x509 -in requests/server-signed.pem -out requests/server.crt

Apache configuration

Copy server.crt and server.key into /etc/apache2/ssl ( if ssl folder not exists, create it ). Change files grants ( server.key should only be readed by root user, server.crt should have read grant to everybody ):

chmod 400 server.key
chmod 444 server.crt

If apache is not listening ssl port, enable it configuring /etc/apache2/ports.conf:

Listen 80
Listen 443

Enable apache ssl support:

apt-get install libapache-mod-ssl

Indicate apache to load ssl modules:

a2enmod ssl 

Configure website:

Link default-ssl file to enable ssl

ln -s /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/default-ssl

Edit /etc/apache2/sites-availables/default-ssl ( enable ssl engine and set SSLCertificateFile and SSLCertificateKeyFile )

 SSLEngine on
 SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/server.crt
 SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/ssl/server.key

Create user certificate:

To create certificates and sign with CA, first create the pair of keys. We will need to specify password and certification data. Will be created a eky ( user.key) and certification request ( user.pem ):

openssl req -new -sha1 -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout user.key -out user.pem

With CA is needed sign certificates:

cp /tmp/usuario.pem /opt/ca/requests
openssl ca -config /etc/ssl/openssl.cnf -policy policy_anything -extensions [b]ssl_client[/b] -out requests/user-signed.pem -infiles requests/user.pem

Convert certificate to PKCS12 to be recognized by browser

openssl pkcs12 -export -clcerts -in user-signed.pem -inkey usuario.key -out user.p12

The files user-signed.pem, user.pem and user.key can be deleted

wipe user-signed.pem user.key user.pem

The user.p12 should be installed to user browser.

Certification revocation

If server has been compromised the CA should be revocated. To revocate a certificate should see serial number at /opt/ca/index.txt.

openssl ca -config /etc/ssl/openssl.cnf -revoke newcerts/<serial-number>.pem

Creat a list of revocated certificates ( CRL )

openssl ca -config /etc/ssl/openssl.cnf -gencrl -crlexts crl_ext -md sha1 -out crl.pem

To send to the browser list should be converted to DER format:

openssl crl -in crl.pem -out ca.crl -outform DER

Now can be sent to browser

Add CRL to Apache

Copy CRL file to apache ssl folder:

cp /tmp/crl.pem /etc/apache2/ssl/ca.crl

Modify /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl file, add SSLCARevocationFile:

 SSLCARevocationFile /etc/apache2/ssl/ca.crl

To take it effect, restart apache service.
