Generating a Certificate Signing Request (CSR)

To request a signed SSL certificate from a Certificate Authority (CA), choose a method:

  • Use the HTTPS Certificate Utility, installed with Management and Security Server.

    On the "Select a certificate action" screen, select Generate a new private key and Certificate Signing Request and proceed through the screens. Click Help for assistance.

    After you receive the CA-signed certificate, return to this utility to import the certificate together with the private key that was generated by the utility.

  • Work directly with a CA and follow their instructions. Here are some examples:

    • Comodo
    • DigiCert
    • GeoTrust
    • Thawte
    • Symantec
