A Nagios / Icinga plugin for checking self-signed trusted root or self-signed CA certificates
check_ss_certs is a Nagios / Icinga plugin for checking for non self-signed trusted root or self-signed CA certificates. For some certificate-sensitive applications (such as Skype for Business) these certificates can force errors..
I successfully tested the plugin on Windows Server 2008 / 2012 R2 machines.
This script needs to be executed on the Windows machine, e.g. using NSClient++.
The following example checks for non self-signed trusted root certificates:
PS >.\check_ss_certs.ps1 OK: No non self-signed trusted root certificates
Checking for self-signed CA certificates:
PS >.\check_ss_certs.ps1 -SelfSignedCA OK: No self-signed intermediate certificates
To install the plugin, move the PowerShell script to the
plugins directory of your agent and alter the configuration, e.g. for NSClient++:
... #check_ss_certs check_ss_certs=C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe c:\NSCP\plugins\check_ss_certs.ps1
Restart the service and schedule a service check.
