Usage Guidelines

When a PKI entity uses SCEP to apply for a certificate from CA, CA needs to verify the challenge password of the entity. CA accepts the certificate application request only when the challenge password is correct. You need to run this command to set a challenge password for the PKI entity.

The challenge password is also used to revoke a certificate. It avoids misoperations in certificate revocation.


# Set the challenge password used to apply for certificate through SCEP.
