Setup

What sslcertificate affects

  • Installs certificates into your Windows key stores

Beginning with sslcertificate

To install a certificate in the My directory of the LocalMachine root store:

    sslcertificate { "Install-PFX-Certificate" :
      name       => 'mycert.pfx',
      password   => 'password123',
      location   => 'C:\',
      thumbprint => '07E5C1AF7F5223CB975CC29B5455642F5570798B'
    }

To install a certificate in an alternative directory:

    sslcertificate { "Install-Intermediate-Certificate" :
      name       => 'go_daddy_intermediate.p7b',
      location   => 'C:\',
      store_dir  => 'CA',
      root_store => 'LocalMachine',
      thumbprint => '07E5C1AF7F5223CB975CC29B5455642F5570798B'
    }

To install a certificate in the My directory of the LocalMachine root store and set the key as not exportable:

    sslcertificate { "Install-PFX-Certificate" :
      name           => 'mycert.pfx',
      password       => 'password123',
      location       => 'C:',
      thumbprint     => '07E5C1AF7F5223CB975CC29B5455642F5570798B',
      exportable  => false
  }

For more details on the different options available with certificate management directories, see Windows Dev Center.

Usage

Classes and Defined Types

Defined Type: sslcertificate

The primary definition of the sslcertificate module. This definition will install the certificates into your keystore(s).

Parameters within sslcertificate:

password

The password for the given certificate

location

The location where the file certificate is. Do not end the string with any forward or backslash. Note that in puppet manifests, double-backslashes must be re-doubled, even in single-quoted strings, e.g.

    sslcertificate { "Install-PFX-Certificate from UNC path" :
      name       => 'mycert.pfx',
      password   => 'password123',
      location   => '\\\\StorageServer\Fileshare',
      thumbprint => '07E5C1AF7F5223CB975CC29B5455642F5570798B'
    }
thumbprint

The thumbprint used to verify the certificate

store_dir

The certifcate store where the certificate will be installed to

root_store

The store location for the given certification store. Either LocalMachine or CurrentUser

scripts_dir

This parameter has been deprecated and isn't used anymore. The scripts aren't saved to disk anymore.

exportable

Flag to set the key as exportable. true == exportable; false == not exportable. By default is set to true.

wildcard

Flag to set the MachineKeySet flag in import, used for importing wildcard certificates. Defaults to false

interstore

If this is set to true, any intermediate certificates included will be imported in the same store_dir, not the intermediate store. Defaults to false
