Importing CA certificates¶
The X.509 module tries to verify certificates using its own trust store. By default this trust store is empty and it is up to the Icinga Web 2 admin to import CA certificates into it.
icingacli x509 import command CA certificates can be imported. The certificate chain file that is specified
--file option should contain a PEM-encoded list of X.509 certificates which should be added to the trust
icingacli x509 import --file /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
The X.509 module needs to know which IP address ranges and ports to scan. These can be configured in
Configuration -> Modules -> x509 -> Jobs.
Scan jobs have a name which uniquely identifies them, e.g.
lan. These names are used by the CLI command to start
scanning for specific jobs.
Each scan job can have one or more IP address ranges and one or more port ranges. The X.509 module scans each port in a job’s port ranges for all the individual IP addresses in the IP ranges.
IP address ranges have to be specified using the CIDR format. Multiple IP address ranges can be separated with commas, e.g.:
Port ranges are separated with dashes (
-). If you only want to scan a single port you don’t need to specify the second
Scan jobs can be executed using the
icingacli x509 scan CLI command. The
--job option is used to specify the scan
job which should be run:
icingacli x509 scan --job lan
Each job may specify a
schedule to run periodically at the given interval. The
cron format is as
* * * * * - - - - - | | | | | | | | | | | | | | +----- day of week (0 - 6) (Sunday to Saturday) | | | +---------- month (1 - 12) | | +--------------- day of month (1 - 31) | +-------------------- hour (0 - 23) +------------------------- minute (0 - 59)
|Run once a year at midnight of 1 January||0 0 1 1 *|
|Run once a month at midnight of the first day of the month||0 0 1 * *|
|Run once a week at midnight on Sunday morning||0 0 * * 0|
|Run once a day at midnight||0 0 * * *|
|Run once an hour at the beginning of the hour||0 * *|
Jobs are executed on CLI with the
icingacli x509 jobs run
This command runs all jobs which are currently due and schedules the next execution of all jobs.
You may configure this command as
systemd service. Just copy the example service definition from
/etc/systemd/system/icinga-x509.service and enable it afterwards:
systemctl enable icinga-x509.service
As an alternative if you want scan jobs to be run periodically, you can use the
cron(8) daemon to run them on a
vi /etc/crontab [...] # Runs job 'lan' daily at 2:30 AM 30 2 * * * wwwdata icingacli x509 scan --job lan
