View the contents of a SSL cert.

Did you just find a thisserver.crt file on your machine and you want to check the details of what it’s for? In other words you have a SSL certificate that you want to decode.

You need to be on Linux and have OpenSSL installed. Then use the x509 module:

openssl x509 -text -in thisserver.crt

Enjoy!
