revoke-certificate

Description

Revokes a certificate that was issued inside Amazon Web Services Private CA. If you enable a certificate revocation list (CRL) when you create or update your private CA, information about the revoked certificates will be included in the CRL. Amazon Web Services Private CA writes the CRL to an S3 bucket that you specify. A CRL is typically updated approximately 30 minutes after a certificate is revoked. If for any reason the CRL update fails, Amazon Web Services Private CA attempts makes further attempts every 15 minutes. With Amazon CloudWatch, you can create alarms for the metrics CRLGenerated and MisconfiguredCRLBucket . For more information, see Supported CloudWatch Metrics .

Note

Both Amazon Web Services Private CA and the IAM principal must have permission to write to the S3 bucket that you specify. If the IAM principal making the call does not have permission to write to the bucket, then an exception is thrown. For more information, see Access policies for CRLs in Amazon S3 .

Amazon Web Services Private CA also writes revocation information to the audit report. For more information, see CreateCertificateAuthorityAuditReport .

Note

You cannot revoke a root CA self-signed certificate.

Options

--certificate-authority-arn (string)

Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the private CA that issued the certificate to be revoked. This must be of the form:

``arn:aws:acm-pca:region :account :certificate-authority/12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012 ``

--certificate-serial (string)

Serial number of the certificate to be revoked. This must be in hexadecimal format. You can retrieve the serial number by calling GetCertificate with the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the certificate you want and the ARN of your private CA. The GetCertificate action retrieves the certificate in the PEM format. You can use the following OpenSSL command to list the certificate in text format and copy the hexadecimal serial number.

openssl x509 -in *file_path* -text -noout

You can also copy the serial number from the console or use the DescribeCertificate action in the Certificate Manager API Reference .

--revocation-reason (string)

Specifies why you revoked the certificate.

Possible values:

  • UNSPECIFIED
  • KEY_COMPROMISE
  • CERTIFICATE_AUTHORITY_COMPROMISE
  • AFFILIATION_CHANGED
  • SUPERSEDED
  • CESSATION_OF_OPERATION
  • PRIVILEGE_WITHDRAWN
  • A_A_COMPROMISE

--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.

--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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Examples

Note

To use the following examples, you must have the AWS CLI installed and configured. See the Getting started guide in the AWS CLI User Guide for more information.

Unless otherwise stated, all examples have unix-like quotation rules. These examples will need to be adapted to your terminal's quoting rules. See Using quotation marks with strings in the AWS CLI User Guide .

To revoke a private certificate

The following revoke-certificate command revokes a private certificate from the CA identified by the ARN.

aws acm-pca revoke-certificate --certificate-authority-arn arn:aws:acm-pca:us-west-2:1234567890:certificate-authority/12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012 --certificate-serial 67:07:44:76:83:a9:b7:f4:05:56:27:ff:d5:5c:eb:cc --revocation-reason "KEY_COMPROMISE"

Output

None
