Hi team,

   We work a lot with SSL certificates and we are looking for a php based solution where we just paste the certificate PEM file on a form on a web page, click submit then get the full details of the certificate we are working with....something similar to what this page is doing    --> http://www.sslshopper.com/certificate-decoder.html.  

We have a recent Centos/Apache web server in our office, but no one knows php.

Would appreciate if someone could post the code snippet that can let us do this.

Thanks very much.

typically openssl is used
http://php.net/manual/en/function.openssl-x509-read.php

extract example:

// Get a certificate resource from the PEM string.
    $cert = openssl_x509_read( $pemdata );

// Parse the resource and print out the contents.
    $cert_data = openssl_x509_parse( $cert );
    array_walk( $cert_data, 'print_element' );
