Hi!

I'm using OpenSSL to generate an x.509 certificate used for document
signing using pretty much the following:

require 'openssl'
key = OpenSSL::PKey::RSA.generate(1024)
pub = key.public_key
ca =
OpenSSL::X509::Name.parse("/C=US/ST=Here/L=There/O=Where/CN=mycompany.com")
cert = OpenSSL::X509::Certificate.new
cert.version = 2
cert.serial = 1
cert.subject = ca
cert.issuer = ca
cert.public_key = pub
cert.not_before = Time.now - 24*60*60
cert.not_after = Time.now + 5*24*60*60*365
puts cert.to_pem

My problem is that the certificate doesn't contain a signature
algorithm. If I decode the certificate using
http://certlogik.com/decoder I see that the certificate has signature
algorith = NULL. I would expect it to be something like
'md5WithRSAEncryption'.

Is there anyway to get the ruby OpenSSL library to add this piece of
information?

Thanks in advance.
