Probe to check and store the days until a certificate expires

    Attached are two files:
    1- documentation on the pre-requisites, installation, and configuraiton of the probe
    2 - the probe, CertificateExpirationCheck, that will retrieve a certificate, extract expiration date, compare to "now" and store days until expiration in NIS database as QoS
    Also required as pre-requsities are:
    1 - Nimsoft Scripting Agent (NSA) 1.03; probe is in LUA and the nsa runs it. Available in the Downloads Section under the SDP 2.05 Beta
    2 - openssl windows installation; openssl is the utility used to retrieve the certificate and extract the expirations date. Available at;
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/gnuwin32/files/openssl/0.9.8h-1/openssl-0.9.8h-1-setup.exe/download

    The zip file has a password on it. Any chance of seeing the Lua source? I'm interested in how you handled dates and times.

    Just import the package into your archive, open/edit it, and then save the Lua script out to a separate file on disk.

    Hello,

    I like your idea and want to implement this in my environment. Does anybody know where to find the lua script or the dev section to get the files form the new portal?

     

    I already tried to search but with no luck... :-/

     

    Thanks for help,

    Andreas

    These days, I'd recommend going for powershell if you're going to do it from Windows. That's what I've done myself, in addition to other, more robust solutions. Moreover, if you're working with websites, url_response is also capable of monitoring certificate expiration. Probably doesn't store it as QOS, but I find that to be extremely useless information as qos anyway.

    Thanks for your answer! So how can I check remotely a pops / imaps / etc... certificate that is not running on a windows machine? with openssl this is possible, but no probe for this is available. for websites url_response is great, but for others there is nothing to handle this...

     

    If you could provide me a short example for powershell this would be helpful! Otherwise it would be nice to have the lua-script mentioned in the beginngen of this thread.

     

    Thanks.

    Hello , can anyone update us on what is the latest status for this probe ? I have been able to found the probe zip file but no documentation.

     

    thank you,
