[openssl-users] Doubt regarding O-SSL and setting the duration of certificates

Thanks for the response.

I was thinking of setting the duration fo the certificate to infinite,

i.e. the Validity period set to infinite.

Because in the information I have, the only possibility is to set the duration (in days) with the command, but the command doesn't allow to put other value rather an integer.

Thanks again

Depends on the question....

'Infinite' duration is used in IEEE 802.1AR Device Identities.  The concept is the vendor installs the certificate in read-only memory.  It is expected to be good for the life of the device.

Dear team of OpenSSL,

First of all, congratulations for your invaluable work!

I have a question regarding the issue of certificates X.509 with infinite duration and I don't know where to submit it.

Please, could you help me?

Thank you very much and kind regards
