Hi
I got a a little problem with openssl and verisgn. I created the request using perl CA.pl -newreq, and the verisign send me an ID, but how do I use this ID? I have tried it with the self signed ID and it worked, but comparing the self signed ID and the one from verisign, it's not the same. I think I miss a step somewhere, but don't know where.

I'd peg this question as a bit tougher than "75pts", but I'll take a whack at it...

Is this a site ID, or a personal ID?  What is the format of your ID (x509, etc?)...  What did verisign tell you to do with your ID when you received it?

If you want my opinion, verisign is pretty weak since they bought NetSol - they seem to have bought into NetSol's managent stratagies as well ("screw all but the highest paying customers").  Do yourself a favor and go to www.thawte.com - they do the same sorts of things as verisign (wrt certs), and they seem a lot more well-documented and helpful in general.

Cheers,

FlamingSword is simply "pinging" this discussion, since he wants to keep up on it and be sure that he can read it even if it gets closed - a strategy I use myself from time to time.

My only addition to this question is:

Forget about thawte if you don't know what you're doing.  Verisign bought them a while back, and the only current apparent difference now is that the thawte certs don't include tech support.  How wonderful.

Cheers,
