## Configuration
2 years ago
SecretShop looks in it's current running directory and /etc/secretshop for it's config file.
Configuration is in a file labeled "config.yaml" in one of the above directories. See the sample config for more details.
A standard file looks like such:
2 years ago
2 years ago
port: 1965
2 years ago
- localhost
Hostname: "localhost"
Port: "1965"
RootDir: "/var/gemini"
CGIDir: "/var/gemini/cgi"
KeyFile: "localhost.key"
CertFile: "localhost.crt"
- /id
- /known
- /private
Whitelist: "whitelist"
2 years ago
Lang: "en"
Where each "active_capsule" is a virtual Gemini capsule. SecretShop supports virtual Gemini capsules all listening on port 1965.
By default, a capsule requires the Hostname, Root Directory, Keyfile, and CertFile to start properly. The capsule also needs to be listed in the "active_capsules" list.
Each capsule can optionally have a "AccessControl" section for use with client certificates. AccessControl is broken up into three zones:
Identified: Requires a client to present a certificate of some kind to access. Currently not validate certificate. Response code 60
Known: Reserved for transient certificates; currently not fully implemented. Reponse code 61
Trusted: Requires a client to present a certificate who's fingerprint matches an entry in the Whitelist file. Currently checks validity dates and the fingerprint. Response codes 62-65
2 years ago
For the Trusted zone, a Whitelist section must exist, with a path leading to the whitelist file. The whitelist file is a text file containing Certificate fingerprints, one for line. This is used
to authenticate client certificates.
If you want full logging (i.e. you're not using systemd, rsyslog, something that auto adds timestamps and program names etc) you can add the "full_logging: true" option.

SecretShop supports specifying what language a Gemini capsule uses for content. See section 5.2 of the Gemini spec for more details. This is set per vhost.

Running "make" should work for any given x86 machine.
If you're planning on running this on a Raspberry Pi or other ARM machine try
env GOOS=linux GOARCH=arm GOARM=5 make
## Installation
Running "make install" will install to /usr//bin by default and will attempt to install the systemd service file
2 years ago
## Uninstall
Run "make uninstall".
2 years ago
## Running
Either run the executable directly or use the Systemd unit file.

## Caveats
2 years ago
Currently does not support transient certificates
Only handles whitelisting for certificate authorization
