Certificate Generation Script

I finally put together a script that gathers some basic information (hostname & SAN’s) and creates a certificate signed against my CA. I’ve got a base myssl.cnf file that ends with

[ req_ext ]
subjectAltName = @alt_names

[ alt_names ]

The script appends all of the alternate names to the myssl.cnf file.

#!/bin/bash

RED_DARK='\033[38;5;196m'
GREEN_DARK='\033[38;5;35m'
BLUE_DARK='\033[38;5;57m'
NC='\033[0m' # Reset

function getInput {
        echo -e "${BLUE_DARK}Please input the short hostname you wish to use (e.g. server123):${NC}"
        read HOST

        echo -e "${BLUE_DARK}Please input the domain name you wish to use with this hostname (e.g. rushworth.us):${NC}"
        read DOMAIN

        echo -e "${GREEN_DARK}Please enter any SAN values for this certificate, separated by spaces (must be fully qualified):${NC}"
        read SANS

        FQHOST="${HOST}.${DOMAIN}"

        echo -e "Short hostname: $HOST"
        echo -e "Fully qualified hostname: $FQHOST"
        echo -e "SAN: $SANS"

        echo -e "${RED_DARK}Is this correct? (Y/N):${NC}"
        read boolCorrect

        if [ $boolCorrect == 'Y' ] || [ $boolCorrect == 'y' ]
        then
                mkdir $HOST
                echo $HOST
                cp myssl.cnf "./$HOST/myssl.cnf"

                cd "./$HOST"

                echo "The following SANs will be used on this certificate: "
                echo "DNS.1 = ${FQHOST}"
                echo "DNS.1 = ${FQHOST}" >> ./myssl.cnf
                echo "DNS.2 = ${HOST}"
                echo "DNS.2 = ${HOST}" >> ./myssl.cnf

                if [ -n "$SANS" ]
                then
                        SANARRAY=( $SANS )
                        iSANCounter=2
                        for SANITEM in "${SANARRAY[@]}" ; do
                                let iSANCounter=iSANCounter+1
                                echo "DNS.${iSANCounter} = ${SANITEM}"
                                echo "DNS.${iSANCounter} = ${SANITEM}" >> ./myssl.cnf
                        done
                fi
                export strCertKeyPassword=Wh1t2v2rP144w9rd

There’s an encrypted private key and a non-encrypted private key. Because I have some Windows servers — Exchange and Active Directory — I create a PFX file too.
