Hi,

I work for a large company (let us call it A) and we provide software to external client (let us call it B).  A is hosting a website for B on A's server.  B is also a large company and wants A to provide a .csr file created on A's server so that B can produce an SSL certificate.

A's network guys say they will create a .csr with A's Organisation details.  Will this work?  Whose details (company name, address etc) should be in the .cst file (apart from Common Name which is unique)

Thanks
H

Yes that will work as 'A' will be hosting the website they can complete the request and install the SSL cert on the hosting server.

 Regarding whose details (company name, address etc) should be in the .cst file (apart from Common Name which is unique)

All details should be that of Company B

Thank you Andy.

>>All details should be that of Company B
What if Company A's details are used in the csr.  What would happen?

Cheers

The certificate would just have the details of Company A within it.
Also the cert provider may question it, apart from that, no issues.
