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.

| Help    |           | Generate this output           |
| 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 3650 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.pem -x509 -days 3650 -out znc.pem -subj "/CN=YourNickname"

Enter this to get the fingerprint:

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

If you are following instructions from certauth, you can stop here. Your certificate is znc.pem and you must tell your client to use it.

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
