Stable release

To install pulp-certguard, run this command in your terminal:

If you don’t have pip installed, this Python installation guide can guide you through the process.


To use the RHSMCertGuard you have to manually install the rhsm Python module which provides RHSM certificate parsing on the pulp server. It requires some system level dependencies, e.g. OpenSSL libraries, which are not the same on all operating operating systems. rhsm from PyPI not being cross-distro is why this requires manual installation.
