+
+Description
+===========
+
+**taler-auditor-exchange** is a command line tool to be used by an
+auditor to add or remove an exchange from the list of exchange’s audited
+by the auditor. You must add an exchange to that list before signing
+denomination keys with taler-auditor-sign or trying to audit it with
+taler-auditor or taler-wire-auditor. Afterwards the exchange will be
+visible via the /exchanges API of the taler-auditor-httpd.
+
+**-m** *MASTERKEY* \| **--exchange-key=**\ ‌\ *MASTERKEY*
+ Public key of the exchange in Crockford base32 encoding, for example
+ as generated by gnunet-ecc -p.
+
+**-h** \| **--help**
+ Print short help on options.
+
+**-u** *EXCHANGE_URL* \| **--auditor-url=**\ ‌\ *EXCHANGE_URL*
+ URL of the exchange. The exchange’s HTTP API must be available at
+ this address.
+
+**-r** \| **--remove**
+ Instead of adding the exchange, remove it. Note that this will drop
+ ALL data associated with that exchange, including existing auditing
+ information. So use with extreme care!
+
+See Also
+========
+
+gnunet-ecc(1), taler-auditor-sign(1), taler.conf(5)
+
+Bugs
+====
+
+We should optionally verify the correctness of this exchange’s base URL
+and that it matches the master public key (note that the exchange may
+still be offline, so it should be possible to bypass such a verfication
+step). Furthermore, if we do verification, as a (less secure)
+convenience option, we should make **-** m optional and obtain it from
+the base URL.

+
+Description
+===========
+
+**taler-auditor** is a command line tool to be used by an auditor to
+audit an exchange’s database and calculate the current financial state
+of the exchange (including revenue, amount expected in escrow and risk
+exposure). The audit is incremental. The first audit must be performed
+with the **-r** option to initialize the tables. The tool reports
+inconsistencies in the balance or incorrect cryptographic signatures
+found in the database. It does NOT check with the bank to see that the
+incoming and outgoing wire transfers that the bank claims to have
+matches the exchange’s database. Its options are as follows.
+
+**-h** \| **--help**
+ Print short help on options.
+
+**-m** *KEY* \| **--exchange-key=**\ ‌\ *KEY*
+ Public master key of the exchange in Crockford base32 encoding, for
+ example as generated by gnunet-ecc -p. If this option is missing,
+ taler-auditor will use the MASTER_PUBLIC_KEY value from the
+ “exchange” section of the configuration.
+
+**-r** \| **--reset**
+ Reset the audit, starts everything from the beginning. Useful for
+ testing and required for the first audit to setup auditor’s tables.
+ Note that if (just) the exchange key changes, the **-r** option
+ should not be used again.

+
+Description
+===========
+
+**taler-exchange-benchmark** is a command line tool to measure the time
+spent to serve withdrawals/deposits/refreshes. It usually needs a
+dedicate configuration file where all the services - the exchange and
+the (fake)bank - listen to URLs not subject to any reverse proxy, as say
+Nginx. Moreover, the benchmark runs on a “volatile” database, that means
+that table are always erased during a single benchmark run.
+
+**-c** *CONFIG_FILENAME* \| **--config=**\ ‌\ *CONFIG_FILENAME*
+ (Mandatory) Use CONFIG_FILENAME.
+
+**-b** *BANK_URL* \| **—bank-url=**\ ‌\ *BANK_URL*
+ (Mandatory) The URL where the fakebank listens at. Must match the
+ host component in the exchange’s escrow account “payto” URL.
+
+**-n** *HOWMANY_COINS* \| **--coins-number=**\ ‌\ *HOWMANY_COINS*
+ Defaults to 1. Specifies how many coins this benchmark should
+ withdraw and spend. After being spent, each coin will be refreshed
+ with a REFRESH_PROBABILITY probability, which is (hardcoded as) 0.1;
+ future versions of this tool should offer this parameter as a CLI
+ option.
+
+**-l** *LOGLEVEL* \| **--log-level=**\ ‌\ *LOGLEVEL*
+ GNUnet-compatible log level, takes values “ERROR/WARNING/INFO/DEBUG”
+
+**-h** \| **--help**
+ Prints a compiled-in help text.

+
+Description
+===========
+
+**taler-exchange-httpd** is a command line tool to run the Taler
+exchange (HTTP server). The required configuration, keys and database
+must exist before running this command.
+
+Its options are as follows:
+
+**-C** \| **–connection-close**
+ Force each HTTP connection to be closed after each request (useful in
+ combination with **-f** to avoid having to wait for nc to time out).
+
+**-c** *FILENAME* \| **–config=**\ ‌\ *FILENAME*
+ Use the configuration and other resources for the merchant to operate
+ from FILENAME.
+
+**-h** \| **–help**
+ Print short help on options.
+
+**-i** \| **–init-db**
+ Initialize the database by creating tables and indices if necessary.
+
+**-v** \| **–version**
+ Print version information.
+
+**-f** *FILENAME* \| **–file-input=**\ ‌\ *FILENAME*
+ This option is only available if the exchange was compiled with the
+ configure option –enable-developer-mode. It is used for generating
+ test cases against the exchange using AFL. When this option is
+ present, the HTTP server will
+
+ 1. terminate after the first client’s HTTP connection is completed,
+ and
+ 2. automatically start such a client using a helper process based on
+ the nc(1) or ncat(1) binary using FILENAME as the standard input
+ to the helper process.
+
+ As a result, the process will effectively run with *FILENAME* as the
+ input from an HTTP client and then immediately exit. This is useful
+ to test taler-exchange-httpd against many different possible inputs
+ in a controlled way.
+
+**-t** *SECONDS* \| **–timeout=**\ ‌\ *SECONDS*
+ Specifies the number of SECONDS after which the HTTPD should close
+ (idle) HTTP connections.
+
+**-L** *LOGLEVEL* \| **–loglevel=**\ ‌\ *LOGLEVEL*
+ Specifies the log level to use. Accepted values are: DEBUG, INFO,
+ WARNING, ERROR.
+
+SIGNALS
+=======
+
+**taler-exchange-httpd** responds to the following signals:
+
+``SIGUSR1``
+ Sending a SIGUSR1 to the process will cause it to reload denomination
+ and signing keys.
+
+``SIGTERM``
+ Sending a SIGTERM to the process will cause it to shutdown cleanly.
+
+``SIGHUP``
+ Sending a SIGHUP to the process will cause it to re-execute the
+ taler-exchange-httpd binary in the PATH, passing it the existing
+ listen socket. Then the old server process will automatically exit
+ after it is done handling existing client connections; the new server
+ process will accept and handle new client connections.

+ Use AI as the instance, instead of 'default' (which is the
+ default instance used.)
+
+
+ -u UN, --unaggregated-number=UN

+ subsequent invocations of the generator may pick those
+ unaggregated payments and actually aggregated them.
+
+
+
+Common Options
+==============
+
+-k K, --currency=K
+ Use currency K, mandatory.
+
+
+-m URL, --merchant-url=URL

+
+ **taler.conf** - Taler configuration file
+
+
+Description
+===========
+
+The basic structure of the configuration file is the following. The file
+is split into sections. Every section begins with “[SECTIONNAME]” and
+contains a number of options of the form “OPTION=VALUE”. Empty lines and
+lines beginning with a “#” are treated as comments. Files containing
+default values for many of the options described below are installed
+under $TALER_PREFIX/share/taler/config.d/. The configuration file given
+with **-c** to Taler binaries overrides these defaults.
+
+Global Options
+--------------
+
+The following options are from the “[taler]” section and used by
+virtually all Taler components.
+
+CURRENCY
+ Name of the currency, i.e. “EUR” for Euro.
+
+The “[PATHS]” section is special in that it contains paths that can be
+referenced using “$” in other configuration values that specify
+filenames. For Taler, it commonly contains the following paths:
+
+TALER_HOME
+ Home directory of the user, usually “${HOME}”. Can be overwritten by
+ testcases by setting ${TALER_TEST_HOME}.
+
+TALER_DATA_HOME
+ Where should Taler store its long-term data. Usually
+ “${TALER_HOME}/.local/share/taler/”
+
+TALER_CONFIG_HOME
+ Where is the Taler configuration kept. Usually
+ “${TALER_HOME}/.config/taler/”
+
+TALER_CACHE_HOME
+ Where should Taler store cached data. Usually
+ “${TALER_HOME}/.cache/taler/”
+
+TALER_RUNTIME_DIR
+ Where should Taler store system runtime data (like UNIX domain
+ sockets). Usually “${TMP}/taler-system-runtime”.
+
+EXCHANGE OPTIONS
+----------------
+
+The following options are from the “[exchange]” section and used by most
+exchange tools.
+
+DB
+ Plugin to use for the database, i.e. “postgres”
+
+PORT
+ Port on which the HTTP server listens, i.e. 8080.
+
+MASTER_PUBLIC_KEY
+ Crockford Base32-encoded master public key, public version of the
+ exchange´s long-time offline signing key.
+
+MASTER_PRIV_FILE
+ Location of the master private key on disk. Only used by tools that
+ can be run offline (as the master key is for offline signing).
+
+BASE_URL
+ Specifies the base URL under which the exchange can be reached. Added
+ to wire transfers to enable tracking by merchants.
+
+SIGNKEY_DURATION
+ For how long is a signing key valid?
+
+LEGAL_DURATION
+ For how long are signatures with signing keys legally valid?
+
+LOOKAHEAD_SIGN
+ How long do we generate denomination and signing keys ahead of time?
+
+LOOKAHEAD_PROVIDE
+ How long into the future do we provide signing and denomination keys
+ to clients?
+
+EXCHANGE POSTGRES BACKEND DATABASE OPTIONS
+------------------------------------------
+
+The following options must be in section “[exchangedb-postgres]” if the
+“postgres” plugin was selected for the database.
+
+CONFIG
+ How to access the database, i.e. “postgres:///taler” to use the
+ “taler” database. Testcases use “talercheck”.
+
+MERCHANT OPTIONS
+----------------
+
+The following options are from the “[merchant]” section and used by the
+merchant backend.
+
+DB
+ Plugin to use for the database, i.e. “postgres”
+
+PORT
+ Port on which the HTTP server listens, i.e. 8080.
+
+WIRE_TRANSFER_DELAY
+ How quickly do we want the exchange to send us money? Note that wire
+ transfer fees will be higher if we ask for money to be wired often.
+ Given as a relative time, i.e. “5 s”
+
+DEFAULT_MAX_WIRE_FEE
+ Maximum wire fee we are willing to accept from exchanges. Given as a
+ Taler amount, i.e. “EUR:0.1”
+
+DEFAULT_MAX_DEPOSIT_FEE
+ Maximum deposit fee we are willing to cover. Given as a Taler amount,
+ i.e. “EUR:0.1”
+
+MERCHANT POSTGRES BACKEND DATABASE OPTIONS
+------------------------------------------
+
+The following options must be in section “[merchantdb-postgres]” if the
+“postgres” plugin was selected for the database.
+
+CONFIG
+ How to access the database, i.e. “postgres:///taler” to use the
+ “taler” database. Testcases use “talercheck”.
+

+at least the “default” instance. The following options must be given in
+each “[instance-NAME]” section.
+
+KEYFILE
+ Name of the file where the instance´s private key is to be stored,
+ i.e. “${TALER_CONFIG_HOME}/merchant/instance/name.priv”
+
+NAME
+ Human-readable name of the instance, i.e. “Kudos Inc.”
+
+Additionally, for instances that support tipping, the following options
+are required.

+
+KNOWN EXCHANGES (for merchants and wallets)
+-------------------------------------------
+
+The merchant configuration can include a list of known exchanges if the
+merchant wants to specify that certain exchanges are explicitly trusted.
+For each trusted exchange, a section [exchange-NAME] must exist, where
+NAME is a merchant-given name for the exchange. The following options
+must be given in each “[exchange-NAME]” section.
+
+BASE_URL
+ Base URL of the exchange, i.e. “https://exchange.demo.taler.net/”
+
+MASTER_KEY
+ Crockford Base32 encoded master public key, public version of the
+ exchange´s long-time offline signing key
+
+CURRENCY
+ Name of the currency for which this exchange is trusted, i.e. “KUDOS”
+
+KNOWN AUDITORS (for merchants and wallets)
+------------------------------------------
+
+The merchant configuration can include a list of known exchanges if the
+merchant wants to specify that certain auditors are explicitly trusted.
+For each trusted exchange, a section [auditor-NAME] must exist, where
+NAME is a merchant-given name for the exchange. The following options
+must be given in each “[auditor-NAME]” section.
+
+BASE_URL
+ Base URL of the auditor, i.e. “https://auditor.demo.taler.net/”

+
+ACCOUNT OPTIONS (for exchanges and merchants)
+---------------------------------------------
+
+An exchange (or merchant) can have multiple bank accounts. The following
+options are for sections named “[account-SOMETHING]”. The SOMETHING is
+arbitrary and should be chosen to uniquely identify the bank account for
+the operator. Additional authentication options may need to be specified
+in the account section depending on the PLUGIN used.
+
+URL
+ Specifies the payto://-URL of the account. The general format is
+ payto://METHOD/DETAILS. This option is used for exchanges and
+ merchants.
+
+WIRE_RESPONSE
+ Specifies the name of the file in which the /wire response for this
+ account should be located. Used by the Taler exchange service and the
+ taler-exchange-wire tool and the taler-merchant-httpd (to generate
+ the files).
+
+PLUGIN
+ Name of the plugin can be used to access the account
+ (i.e. “taler-bank” or “ebics”). Used by the merchant backend for back
+ office operations (i.e. to identify incoming wire transfers) and by
+ the exchange.
+
+ENABLE_DEBIT
+ Must be set to YES for the accounts that the
+ taler-exchange-aggregator should debit. Not used by merchants.
+
+ENABLE_CREDIT
+ Must be set to YES for the accounts that the taler-exchange-wirewatch
+ should check for credits. It is yet uncertain if the merchant
+ implementation may check this flag as well.
+
+HONOR_instance
+ Must be set to YES for the instances (where “instance” is the section
+ name of the instance) of the merchant backend that should allow
+ incoming wire transfers for this bank account.
+
+ACTIVE_instance
+ Must be set to YES for the instances (where “instance” is the section
+ name of the instance) of the merchant backend that should use this
+ bank account in new offers/contracts. Setting ACTIVE_instance to YES
+ requires also setting ENABLE_instance to YES.
+
+TALER-BANK AUTHENTICATION OPTIONS (for accounts)
+------------------------------------------------
+
+The following authentication options are supported by the “taler-bank”
+wire plugin. They must be specified in the “[account-]” section that
+uses the “taler-bank” plugin.
+
+TALER_BANK_AUTH_METHOD
+ Authentication method to use. “none” or “basic” are currently
+ supported.
+
+USERNAME
+ Username to use for authentication. Used with the “basic”
+ authentication method.

+“ebics” plugin.
+
+NONE
+ Currently the “ebics” implementation is incomplete and does not
+ support authentication.
+
+EXCHANGE WIRE FEE OPTIONS
+-------------------------
+
+For each supported wire method (i.e. “x-taler-bank” or “sepa”), sections
+named “[fees-METHOD]” state the (aggregate) wire transfer fee and the
+reserve closing fees charged by the exchange. Note that fees are
+specified using the name of the wire method, not by the plugin name. You
+need to replace “YEAR” in the option name by the calendar year for which
+the fee should apply. Usually, fees should be given for serveral years
+in advance.
+
+WIRE-FEE-YEAR
+ Aggregate wire transfer fee merchants are charged in YEAR. Specified
+ as a Taler amount using the usual amount syntax
+ (CURRENCY:VALUE.FRACTION).
+
+CLOSING-FEE-YEAR
+ Reserve closing fee customers are charged in YEAR. Specified as a
+ Taler amount using the usual amount syntax (CURRENCY:VALUE.FRACTION).

+ coin).
+
+DURATION_OVERLAP
