Certificate Viewer utility (viewcert)

Display values within a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) object, convert the encoding of PKI objects, or encrypt and decrypt private keys.

Syntax
viewcert [ options ] input-file

The input-file must be a DER- or PEM-encoded PKI object.

Option Description
-d DER-encodes the output. This option is only useful with the -o option. It cannot be used with -p. By default, viewcert outputs the PKI object in a readable text format.
-ip input-password Specifies the password needed to decrypt the private key if the input-file contains an encrypted private key.
-o output-file Specifies the file that viewcert should write the output to. By default, viewcert writes the output to the command prompt window where it is running.
-op output-password Specifies the password viewcert should use to encrypt a private key. This option is only useful with -d or -p. By default, private keys are not encrypted.
-p PEM-encodes the output. This option is only useful with the -o option. It cannot be used with -d. By default, viewcert outputs the PKI object in a readable text format.
Remarks

The viewcert utility can be used to view the following types of PKI objects:

Viewcert can also be used to convert between DER and PEM encoding types and to encrypt or decrypt private keys.

The viewcert utility supports RSA and ECC objects. To view ECC objects, you must order a separate license. See Separately licensed components.
