       pkcs7 - PKCS#7 utility

       openssl	pkcs7  [-inform PEM | DER] [-outform PEM | DER] [-in filename]
       [-out filename] [-print_certs] [-text] [-noout]

       Specifies the input format. The DER format is DER encoded  PKCS#7  v1.5
       structure.  The PEM format (the default) is a base64 encoded version of
       the DER form with header and footer lines.  Specifies the  output  for‐
       mat.  The  options have the same meaning as the -inform option.	Speci‐
       fies the input filename to read from or standard input if  this	option
       is  not	specified.  Specifies the output filename to write to or stan‐
       dard output by default.	Prints out any certificates or CRLs  contained
       in  the	file.  They  are preceded by their subject and issuer names in
       one-line format.	 Prints out certificate details in  full  rather  than
       just  subject and issuer names.	Does not output the encoded version of
       the PKCS#7 structure (or certificates if -print_certs is set).

       The pkcs7 command processes PKCS#7 files in DER or PEM format.

       The PEM PKCS#7 format uses the header and footer lines:
	-----BEGIN PKCS7-----
	-----END PKCS7-----

       For compatability with some CAs it will also accept:

       There is no option to print out all the fields of a PKCS#7 file.

       These PKCS#7 routines only understand PKCS#7  v	1.5  as	 specified  in
       RFC2315.	  For  example,	 they	cannot	currently parse the new CMS as
       described in RFC2630.

       Convert a PKCS#7 file from PEM to DER:
	openssl pkcs7 -in file.pem -outform DER -out file.der

       Output all certificates in a file:
	openssl pkcs7 -in file.pem -print_certs -out certs.pem
