Deployment Method:

📝 NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to

2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade opensslkey -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade opensslkey -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Open SSL Key - Utility to generate XML keys from PEM or DER keys.
Reads and parses:
(1) OpenSSL PEM or DER public keys
(2) OpenSSL PEM or DER traditional SSLeay private keys (encrypted and unencrypted)
(3) PKCS #8 PEM or DER encoded private keys (encrypted and unencrypted)
| Keys in PEM format must have headers/footers .
| Encrypted Private Key in SSLEay format not supported in DER
| Removes header/footer lines.
| For traditional SSLEAY PEM private keys, checks for encrypted format and uses PBE to extract 3DES key.
| For SSLEAY format, only supports encryption format: DES-EDE3-CBC
| For PKCS #8, only supports PKCS#5 v2.0 3des.
| Parses private and public key components and returns .NET RSA object.
| Creates dummy unsigned certificate linked to private keypair and optionally exports to pkcs #12

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
