Simple OpenVPN profile generator

Few month ago i learned that OpenVPN support profiles. Before that i generate config for every client, create keys and certs with easy-rsa, tar it’s all together and put on client. Now i can create profile that will contain all necessary keys, certs and config in one file, so i write simple script that generate .ovpn profile for new client.
Generated .ovpn profile can be imported from sd card in Android, via iTunes or email in iOS, or just type `openvpn your_new_profile.ovpn` at PC.
Prerequisites: configured easy-rsa (`pkitool clientname` must produce cert and key for client).
You must customize config part for your server, it is possible to fetch data from server config file, but i’m too lazy to modify script for it.
There is it:

#!/bin/bash
#Dir where easy-rsa is placed
EASY_RSA_DIR="/etc/ssl/easy-rsa"
KEYS_DIR="$EASY_RSA_DIR/keys"
# Dir where profiles will be placed
OVPN_PATH="/root/ovpn"
REMOTE="your.server port"
 
 
if [ -z "$1" ]
then 
        echo -n "Enter new client common name (CN): "
        read -e CN
else
        CN=$1
fi
 
 
if [ -z "$CN" ]
        then echo "You must provide a CN."
        exit
fi
 
cd $EASY_RSA_DIR
if [ -f $KEYS_DIR/$CN.crt ]
then 
        echo "Certificate with the CN $CN already exists!"
        echo " $KEYS_DIR/$CN.crt"
else
source ./vars > /dev/null
./pkitool $CN
fi
 
cat > $OVPN_PATH/${CN}.ovpn << END

</cert>
 
<key>
`cat $KEYS_DIR/${CN}.key`
</key>
END
