       openssl-pkcs7 - PKCS#7 command


       openssl pkcs7 [-help] [-inform DER|PEM] [-outform DER|PEM] [-in
       filename] [-out filename] [-print] [-print_certs] [-quiet] [-text]
       [-noout] [-engine id] [-provider name] [-provider-path path]
       [-propquery propq]


       This command processes PKCS#7 files.  Note that it only understands
       PKCS#7 v 1.5 as specified in IETF RFC 2315.  It cannot currently parse
       CMS as described in IETF RFC 2630.


           Print out a usage message.

       -inform DER|PEM, -outform DER|PEM
           The input and formats; the default is PEM.  See
           openssl-format-options(1) for details.

           The data is a PKCS#7 Version 1.5 structure.

       -in filename
           This specifies the input filename to read from or standard input if
           this option is not specified.

       -out filename
           Specifies the output filename to write to or standard output by

           Print out the full PKCS7 object.

           Prints out any certificates or CRLs contained in the file. They are
           preceded by their subject and issuer names in one line format.

           When used with -print_certs, prints out just the PEM-encoded
           certificates without any other output.

           Prints out certificate details in full rather than just subject and
           issuer names.

           Don't output the encoded version of the PKCS#7 structure (or
           certificates if -print_certs is set).

       -engine id
           See "Engine Options" in openssl(1).  This option is deprecated.

       -provider name
       -provider-path path
       -propquery propq
           See "Provider Options" in openssl(1), provider(7), and property(7).


       Convert a PKCS#7 file from PEM to DER:

        openssl pkcs7 -in file.pem -outform DER -out file.der

       Output all certificates in a file:

        openssl pkcs7 -in file.pem -print_certs -out certs.pem


       openssl(1), openssl-crl2pkcs7(1)


       The -engine option was deprecated in OpenSSL 3.0.
