openssl-nseq, nseq - create or examine a Netscape certificate sequence
openssl nseq [-help] [-in filename] [-out filename] [-toseq]
The nseq command takes a file containing a Netscape certificate
sequence and prints out the certificates contained in it or takes a
file of certificates and converts it into a Netscape certificate

normally a Netscape certificate sequence will be input and the
output is the certificates contained in it. With the -toseq option
the situation is reversed: a Netscape certificate sequence is
created from a file of certificates.
Output the certificates in a Netscape certificate sequence
openssl nseq -in nseq.pem -out certs.pem
Create a Netscape certificate sequence
openssl nseq -in certs.pem -toseq -out nseq.pem
The PEM encoded form uses the same headers and footers as a
A Netscape certificate sequence is a Netscape specific form that can be
sent to browsers as an alternative to the standard PKCS#7 format when
several certificates are sent to the browser: for example during
certificate enrollment. It is used by Netscape certificate server for
This program needs a few more options: like allowing DER or PEM input
and output files and allowing multiple certificate files to be used.
