acra-addzone (deprecated since 0.94.0) #

acra-addzone is a command-line utility that generates new Zone keys for AcraBlocks/AcraStructs. Zones are deprecated since 0.94.0, but if you are looking for a flexible approach of differentiating clients, check the differentiating ClientID dynamically via SQL page.

Command line flags #

Configuration files #

  • --config_file=<filename>

    Path to YAML configuration file.

  • --dump_config

    Dump configuration to configs/acra-addzone.yaml.

  • --generate_markdown_args_table

    Generate markdown file with text description of all flags. Output file is configs/markdown_acra-addzone.md. Works in a pair with --dump_config.

Logging #

  • -v

    Log to stderr all INFO, WARNING and ERROR logs.

Storage destination #

Filesystem #

  • --keys_output_dir=<path>

    Path to keystore directory.

    Default is .acrakeys.

Redis #

  • --redis_db_keys=<number>

    Redis database number to use. Default is 0.

  • --redis_host_port=<host:port>

    Address of Redis database to use as keystore. If not specified, Redis is not used.

  • --redis_password=<password>

    Password to Redis database.

  • --redis_tls_client_auth=<mode>

    Set authentication mode that will be used for TLS connection with Redis.

    • 0 — do not request client certificate, ignore it if received;
    • 1 — request client certificate, but don’t require it;
    • 2 — expect to receive at least one certificate to continue the handshake;
    • 3 — don’t require client certificate, but validate it if client actually sent it;
    • 4 — (default) request and validate client certificate.

    These values correspond to crypto.tls.ClientAuthType.

  • --redis_tls_client_ca=<filename>

    Path to additional CA certificate for Redis' certificate validation. Empty by default.

  • --redis_tls_client_cert=<filename>

    Path to AcraServer TLS certificate presented to Redis (AcraServer works as “client” when communicating with Redis). Empty by default.

  • --redis_tls_client_key=<filename>

    Path to private key of the TLS certificate presented to Redis. Empty by default.

  • --redis_tls_client_sni=<SNI>

    Expected Server Name (SNI) of the Redis instance. Will be used --redis_host_port value if is empty. Empty by default.

  • --redis_tls_crl_client_cache_size=<count>

    How many CRLs to cache in memory in connections to Redis. Use 0 to disable caching. Maximum is 1000000. Default is 16. Cache uses LRU policy.

  • --redis_tls_crl_client_cache_time=<seconds>

    How long to keep CRLs cached, in seconds for connections to Redis. Use 0 to disable caching. Maximum is 300 seconds. Default is 0.

  • --redis_tls_crl_client_check_only_leaf_certificate={true|false}

    This flag controls behavior of validator in cases when Redis' certificate chain contains at least one intermediate certificate.

    • true — validate only leaf certificate
    • false — (default) validate leaf certificate and all intermediate certificates

    This option may be enabled in cases when intermediate CAs are trusted and there is no need to verify them all the time. Also, even if this flag is false but there is no CRL’s URL configured and there is no CRL’s URL in intermediate CA certificates, these intermediate CAs won’t be validated since we don’t know which CRLs could be used for validation.

  • --redis_tls_crl_client_from_cert=<policy>

    How to treat CRL’s URL described in a certificate from Redis server

    • use — try URL(s) from certificate after the one from configuration (if set)
    • trust — try first URL from certificate, if it does not contain checked certificate, stop further checks
    • prefer — (default) try URL(s) from certificate before the one from configuration (if set)
    • ignore — completely ignore CRL’s URL(s) specified in certificate

    “URL from configuration” above means the one configured with --redis_tls_crl_client_url flags.

  • --redis_tls_crl_client_url=<url>

    CRL’s URL for outcoming TLS connections to Redis. Empty by default.

  • --redis_tls_enable=<true|false>

    Turns on/off TLS for connection with Redis to --redis_host_port endpoint.

    • true — turns on
    • false — (default) turns off.
  • --redis_tls_ocsp_client_check_only_leaf_certificate={true|false}

    This flag controls behavior of validator in cases when Redis' certificate chain contains at least one intermediate certificate.

    • true — validate only leaf certificate
    • false — (default) validate leaf certificate and all intermediate certificates

    This option may be enabled in cases when intermediate CAs are trusted and there is no need to verify them all the time. Also, even if this flag is false but there is no OCSP’s URL configured and there is no OCSP’s URL in intermediate CA certificates, these intermediate CAs won’t be validated since we don’t know whom to ask about them.

  • --redis_tls_ocsp_client_from_cert=<policy>

    How to treat OCSP server URL described in a certificate from Redis server

    • use — try URL(s) from certificate after the one from configuration (if set)

    • prefer — (default) try URL(s) from certificate before the one from configuration (if set)
    • ignore — completely ignore OCSP’s URL(s) specified in certificate

    “URL from configuration” above means the one configured with --redis_tls_ocsp_client_url flags.

  • --redis_tls_ocsp_client_required=<policy>

    How to handle situation when OCSP server doesn’t know about requested Redis' certificate and returns “Unknown”.

    • denyUnknown — (default) consider “Unknown” response an error, certificate will be rejected
    • allowUnknown — reverse of denyUnknown, allow certificates unknown to OCSP server
    • requireGood — require all known OCSP servers to respond “Good” in order to allow certificate and continue TLS handshake, this includes all URLs validator can use, from certificate (if not ignored) and from configuration
  • --redis_tls_ocsp_client_url=<url>

    OCSP service URL for outgoing TLS connections to check Redis' certificates. Empty by default.
