CAG SSL Install

dmanisit used Ask the Experts™
Hi all,

So I think I made a mistake. I made a request from my Web Server to Verisign rather than my CAG. Is this going to be a problem or can I still make this work?

No you should be fine.

You will be required to first install the certificate, then export the pfx, convert the pfx into pem and then upload in cag
Hi, here is the supporting article may help you out
Generate the Certificate Request (see CTX116758)
- Install OpenSSL (NB: You may need to rename OpenSSL\bin\openssl.cfg to OpenSSL\bin\openssl.cnf if it does not exist)
- From a command prompt CD to OpenSSL\bin folder
- Run openssl genrsa -des3 -out privateserver.key 1024
- Enter privatekey pass phrase when prompted
- Verify privatekey pass phrase when prompted
- This will create the private key (called privateserver.key) in the OpenSSL\bin folder
- Run openssl req -new -key privateserver.key -out server.csr -outform PEM
- Enter details;
 Country Name - GB

Import Certificate (see CAG admin guide pg264)
