View Full Version : [all variants] [SOLVED] OpenSSL Bug - OpenVPN cert exchange

May 14th, 2008, 09:49 PM
Hi Folks,

i would really, *really* like it if someone could help me with this - please.

As you all know, there was a bug in OpenSSL reported today, which triggered an update to the openssl and openvpn server.

The Problem is now that anyone that had a cert issued during the last 20 month needs a new cert. I am looking at 120+ people that need a cert exchanged - about 80 of them are scattered around europe. I would really like the trip, but i am unlikely to get it approved. So i will need to do it remote, preferibly via a script, option, whatever. Anything that does not involve any action from the people.

So, anybody got any ideas how i can do this without involving the users of the Laptops ?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

PS: if i was unclear on any point, please ask me. I will provide any info neccessary to solve this :)
