Need to make a certificate generated in Open SSL / Thawte work in IIS6 (Private Key is missing from the Cert)
Posted on 2007-10-14
I have generated a certificate signing request via openssl and have sent it to thawte for a cert.
I received the cert back however when i try to use it in IIS the private key is missing from the cert.
From what I have read, IIS prefers to create its own CSR and automatically installs the Private key.
However, I now have a .key file and a seperate thawte key that I need to get working in IIS6.
Points to note...
The current certificate on the IIS6 website was generated from MS Domain server CA, and when viewed has Private key mentioned at the bottom. ( This cert works, however we purchased a thawte cert to get around those pesky messages )
The Thawte Cert does not have the private key mentioned when viewed.
Google has not found me anything usefull, so I am hoping one of you can help me out.
