Generating a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) using SonicWALL SSL Offloader
Step 1: Install OpenSSL
In order to be able to generate a CSR, you will need to have OpenSSL installed on your computer.
Step 2: Create your Certificate Signing Request
To generate a key pair consisting of Private Key and Certificate Signing Request (CSR) use the following command:
openssl req -new -des3 -keyout key.pem -out req.pem
You will now be asked to enter the following data for your CSR:
You will now have created two files, the Private Key file named key.pem and Certificate Signing Request (CSR) file named req.pem
When asked to 'Copy & Paste' your CSR into the CSR field during the order process, open the req.pem file with a text editor and copy and paste the content into the CSR field on the order form.
