Fetch a remote certificate and store it locally


This module fetches a remote certificate using the openssl s_client function and stores it to a local file.


  • puppetlabs-stdlib
  • "openssl" command is available locally (can usually be simply installed with the "package"-type)


With puppet

To download a certificate, simply use the defined type "fetchcert::fetch":

fetchcert::fetch {
    source_host => ''

With hiera

This module includes hiera support. Just include the class "fetchcert" and define the hash "fetchcert::fetch"


See the documentation.
