See the configuration file documentation at http://reductivelabs.com/projects/puppet/reference/configref.html for the full list of acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated by running puppet cert with '--genconfig'.
all: Operate on all items. Currently only makes sense with
'--sign', '--clean', or '--list'.
digest: Set the digest for fingerprinting (defaults to md5). Valid
values depends on your openssl and openssl ruby extension version, but should contain at least md5, sha1, md2, sha256.
clean: Remove all files related to a host from puppet cert's
storage. This is useful when rebuilding hosts, since new certificate signing requests will only be honored if puppet cert does not have a copy of a signed certificate for that host. The certificate of the host remains valid. If '--all' is specified then all host certificates, both signed and unsigned, will be removed.
debug: Enable full debugging.
generate: Generate a certificate for a named client. A
certificate/keypair will be generated for each client named on the command line.
help: Print this help message
list: List outstanding certificate requests. If '--all' is
specified, signed certificates are also listed, prefixed by '+', and revoked or invalid certificates are prefixed by '-' (the verification outcome is printed in parenthesis).
print: Print the full-text version of a host's certificate.
fingerprint: Print the DIGEST (defaults to md5) fingerprint of a host's
revoke: Revoke the certificate of a client. The certificate can be
specified either by its serial number, given as a decimal number or a hexadecimal number prefixed by '0x', or by its hostname. The certificate is revoked by adding it to the Certificate Revocation List given by the 'cacrl' config parameter. Note that the puppetmasterd needs to be restarted after revoking certificates.
sign: Sign an outstanding certificate request. Unless '--all' is
specified, hosts must be listed after all flags.
verbose: Enable verbosity.
version: Print the puppet version number and exit.
verify: Verify the named certificate against the local CA
