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

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • 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. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade opensslkey -y --source="'STEP 3 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="'STEP 3 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.
