Hi,

I don't have much knowledge in security field.
I want to ask the following questions!

1.) I have a sample program which use the file format of *.p12 and *.cert to do the file encryption.

What is this file format?

Can I create this by myself.
I've already visited the site verisign and tried the free-trial version.
But I found I've only created a cert file.

How can I create a *.p12 file?

Thanks!

A .p12 file is a pkcs #12 file.

See http://www.rsasecurity.com/rsalabs/pkcs/index.html for information about Public-Key Cryptography Standards.

Then see http://www.rsasecurity.com/rsalabs/pkcs/pkcs-12/ for specific pkcs #12 information.

You can use OpenSSL to generate pkcs #12 files -- see http://www.drh-consultancy.demon.co.uk/pkcs12faq.html
