K3000 - SSL CSR Setup?

02/06/2013 4010 views

Does anyone have a tutorial or guide on how to generate a CSR for the K3000 SSL configuration? It doesn't provide keys like the K1000 does.

 

Thanks!

Answer Summary:
Download Open SSL from here http://slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html Open a command prompt and change the directory to the directory it created on the root of C:\OpenSSL-Win64\bin (depending on what version you install). Run this in CMD line: openssl req -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout k3000.key -out server.csr Your .key and .csr will be in that directory.

I shot a short HOWTO video on the topic.

The video is still in a ''beta'' stage but if you like you may have a look :

  • I forgot to add a very handy online tool to verify if the certificate of your K3 is totally valid.
    After your K3 is on internet try to use this link: http://www.digicert.com/help/ and provide the url of your K3.
    This will verify if the SSL is valid and if all the certificate chain is ok.

  • Thanks! That worked.
  • P.S.: Before to become mad with the OpenSSL for windows please remember to issue this command in the CMD before to launch OpenSSL.exe:
    set OPENSSL_CONF=c:\[PATH TO YOUR OPENSSL DIRECTORY]\bin\openssl.cfg

It's possible for the K3 to generate a self signed certificate but it is *highly* recommended that you create a public certificate over a wildcard or self-signed cert. http://www.devco.net/archives/2006/02/13/public_-_private_key_encryption_using_openssl.php
