Signing SSL certs to work with remote API's
Posted on 2007-03-23
I have a scripts that connects to API via https. In the script config section it asks me for:
"ssl_connection" => true,
"ssl_strong_verify" => true,
"ssl_cert" => "./client.crt",
"ssl_cacert" => "./CA.pem",
I've sent my request.pem to the API provider and got a signed cert back (signed.pem), but I'm a bit lost as to what I need to do next. I guess I need to somehow sign client.crt with my key and signed.pem and then export it for the script.
I found a couple of tutorials on how to self-sign certs, but can't find anything on how to sign a 3rd party cert.
Can anyone point me to a decent tutorial?
I'm using Openssl 0.9.8e BTW.
