Decoding OpenSSL Files

We'd like to view OpenSSL files as text, but they're often encoded. Here's how to view certificates, keys, and certificate requests.

Decode a certificate:

openssl x509 -text -in <cert-file>  

Decode a key:

openssl rsa -text -in <key-file>

Decode a certificate request:

openssl asn1parse -in <csr-file>
