This module lets users use their own SSL certificate to connect to a server, such as CertFP.

You will have to generate a SSL certificate to use with this module and either place it at `~/.znc/users/<user>/networks/<network>/moddata/cert/user.pem` or use the web interface to upload the certificate.


This user/network module takes no arguments.

| delete  |           | Delete the current certificate |

Generating a certificate

You can use the following openssl commands to generate a certificate

This command would produce a 2048-bit certificate which would expire in 365 days. You can modify the arguments to openssl to change this. znc.pem is the certificate you will need to add to ZNC.

openssl req -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout znc.key -x509 -days 365 -out znc.crt

Now enter this:

cat znc.crt znc.key > znc.pem

Enter this to get the fingerprint:

openssl x509 -sha1 -noout -fingerprint -in znc.pem | sed -e 's/^.*=//;s/://g;y/ABCDEF/abcdef/'

Add the fingerprint to your NickServ account:

/msg NickServ cert add fingerprint

Now move the cert your folder:

mv znc.pem ~/.znc/users/<user>/networks/<network>/moddata/cert/user.pem
