To extract the contents of a PKCS12 file you can use file_get_contents as well:

<?
  $certs
= array();
 
$pkcs12 = file_get_contents( "pkcs12file.pem" );
 
// No password
 
openssl_pkcs12_read( $pkcs12, $certs, "" );
 
print_r( $certs );
?>

Output is:
Array
(
  [cert] => --- BEGIN CERTIFICATE ---
  //snipsnip//
  --- END CERTIFICATE ---
  [pkey] => --- BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY ---
  //snipsnip//
  [extracerts] = Array
  (
  )
)
