changing a *.cer SSL cert to a *.pem or *.pfx??? Anyone know how to do this?

Hello,

I have a root certificate in .cer format. I need to install this certificate onto a hardware device that will only accept .pem format. i have tried exporting the certificate again from the internal subordinate CA but i can only export in the .cer format. The CA is win2k.

any ideas?

Thanks,

Download OpenSSL at www.openssl.org. Once installed you can use the command-line utility to convert your certificate to a *.pem format.

Your command should look very similar to this:

openssl x509 -inform der -in <name of file>.cer -outform pem -out <name of file>.pem
