This page guides you through how to create a certificate signing request (CSR) on your Windows, Mac, or Linux PC and sending it to EZCA to create a TLS Certificate.
Download the .inf file
If ‘MachineKeySet’ is set to true (this will save the certificate in the machine store vs the user store), the following steps must be done running as administrator.
Navigate to your downloads folder and run the following command where
INFFILENAME is the file name you just downloaded and
CSRFILENAME is the file where you want the certificate signing request to be saved:
certreq.exe -new <INFFILENAME>.inf <CSRFILENAME>.csr
Go Back to the EZCA portal.
Close out the instructions dialog.
Click on the “Upload CSR” button.
Select the newly created CSR file
Click the “Request Certificate” button at the top right of the form.
Your Certificate has been created successfully
openssl req -new -newkey rsa:4096 -keyout certificate.key -out certificate.csr -subj /CN=ezssh.io
this will print the Certificate Signing Request into the terminal.
