Generate Certificate Signing Request

The Appliance provides the ability to generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). The options for generating the request are displayed in the screen capture below:

All fields are optional and the information entered is dependent upon the Certificate Authority (CA) being used for certificate generation. After entering the required information and clicking Generate CSR, a window displays providing an option to locally save the CSR in a .tar.gz format. This archive contains three files (*.csr, *.key and CertificateSubject). The .csr file is submitted to your CA and the .key file must be kept private and uploaded to the appliance along with the certificate received from the CA. The CertificateSubject file contains information about the data input and is for informational purposes only.

Please refer to the specific instructions provided by your CA for more information about CSR generation.
