list-certificate-authorities

Description

Lists the private certificate authorities that you created by using the CreateCertificateAuthority action.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-certificate-authorities is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: CertificateAuthorities

Synopsis

  list-certificate-authorities
[--resource-owner <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--resource-owner (string)

Use this parameter to filter the returned set of certificate authorities based on their owner. The default is SELF.

Possible values:

  • SELF
  • OTHER_ACCOUNTS

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Examples

To list your private certificate authorities

The following list-certificate-authorities command lists information about all of the private CAs in your account.

aws acm-pca list-certificate-authorities --max-results 10

Output

CertificateAuthorities -> (list)

Summary information about each certificate authority you have created.

(structure)

Contains information about your private certificate authority (CA). Your private CA can issue and revoke X.509 digital certificates. Digital certificates verify that the entity named in the certificate Subject field owns or controls the public key contained in the Subject Public Key Info field. Call the CreateCertificateAuthority action to create your private CA. You must then call the GetCertificateAuthorityCertificate action to retrieve a private CA certificate signing request (CSR). Sign the CSR with your ACM Private CA-hosted or on-premises root or subordinate CA certificate. Call the ImportCertificateAuthorityCertificate action to import the signed certificate into AWS Certificate Manager (ACM).

Arn -> (string)

RevocationConfiguration -> (structure)

Information about the Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) configuration or certificate revocation list (CRL) created and maintained by your private CA.

CrlConfiguration -> (structure)

Configuration of the certificate revocation list (CRL), if any, maintained by your private CA. A CRL is typically updated approximately 30 minutes after a certificate is revoked. If for any reason a CRL update fails, ACM Private CA makes further attempts every 15 minutes.

Enabled -> (boolean)

Boolean value that specifies whether certificate revocation lists (CRLs) are enabled. You can use this value to enable certificate revocation for a new CA when you call the CreateCertificateAuthority action or for an existing CA when you call the UpdateCertificateAuthority action.

ExpirationInDays -> (integer)

Validity period of the CRL in days.

CustomCname -> (string)

Name inserted into the certificate CRL Distribution Points extension that enables the use of an alias for the CRL distribution point. Use this value if you don't want the name of your S3 bucket to be public.

S3BucketName -> (string)

Name of the S3 bucket that contains the CRL. If you do not provide a value for the CustomCname argument, the name of your S3 bucket is placed into the CRL Distribution Points extension of the issued certificate. You can change the name of your bucket by calling the UpdateCertificateAuthority operation. You must specify a bucket policy that allows ACM Private CA to write the CRL to your bucket.

S3ObjectAcl -> (string)

Determines whether the CRL will be publicly readable or privately held in the CRL Amazon S3 bucket. If you choose PUBLIC_READ, the CRL will be accessible over the public internet. If you choose BUCKET_OWNER_FULL_CONTROL, only the owner of the CRL S3 bucket can access the CRL, and your PKI clients may need an alternative method of access.

If no value is specified, the default is PUBLIC_READ .

Note: This default can cause CA creation to fail in some circumstances. If you have have enabled the Block Public Access (BPA) feature in your S3 account, then you must specify the value of this parameter as BUCKET_OWNER_FULL_CONTROL , and not doing so results in an error. If you have disabled BPA in S3, then you can specify either BUCKET_OWNER_FULL_CONTROL or PUBLIC_READ as the value.

For more information, see Blocking public access to the S3 bucket .

OcspConfiguration -> (structure)

Configuration of Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) support, if any, maintained by your private CA. When you revoke a certificate, OCSP responses may take up to 60 minutes to reflect the new status.

Enabled -> (boolean)

Flag enabling use of the Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) for validating certificate revocation status.

OcspCustomCname -> (string)

By default, ACM Private CA injects an AWS domain into certificates being validated by the Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP). A customer can alternatively use this object to define a CNAME specifying a customized OCSP domain.

Note: The value of the CNAME must not include a protocol prefix such as "http://" or "https://".

For more information, see Customizing Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) in the AWS Certificate Manager Private Certificate Authority (PCA) User Guide .

RestorableUntil -> (timestamp)

The period during which a deleted CA can be restored. For more information, see the PermanentDeletionTimeInDays parameter of the DeleteCertificateAuthorityRequest action.

KeyStorageSecurityStandard -> (string)

Defines a cryptographic key management compliance standard used for handling CA keys.

Default: FIPS_140_2_LEVEL_3_OR_HIGHER

Note: AWS Region ap-northeast-3 supports only FIPS_140_2_LEVEL_2_OR_HIGHER. You must explicitly specify this parameter and value when creating a CA in that Region. Specifying a different value (or no value) results in an InvalidArgsException with the message "A certificate authority cannot be created in this region with the specified security standard."

NextToken -> (string)

When the list is truncated, this value is present and should be used for the NextToken parameter in a subsequent pagination request.
