We have a certificate which is composed of the following files

name.crt  (Security Certificate)
name.ket (Key File)

I need to convert this to a PFX to be used for IIS 7.0

Do I need a tool to do this?

If you have your code signing certificate, you should be able to install it and export the PFX using the Certificated MMC snap-in.

Instructions are on Technet here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd261744.aspx

must admit, not familiar with the "ket" file, so I am going to assume its actually "key"

if so, This Tool is the easiest way to convert between different pkcs file formats - import your two files there and export as pkcs#12 (which is the real name for a pfx file)

shouldn't be too much trouble for you - the instructions for XCA are here if you find the tool insufficiently intuitive...

yup, very handy tool - can also turn a PFX back into a CSR to send to a different CA :)
