Certificate Private Key

rab ngl

Hello,

 

I've created self-signed certificate and has been signed by trusted CA, and I applied the Inbound and outbound TLS successfully.

 

Now, I want to copy the Private Key, but I don't know the location of the file. Can someone give me advise where I can find the private key? Also, I need the private key's password.

 

Thanks.

You can export the certificate and convert it to PEM format to view details within the certificate.

 

Network -> Certificates -> Export Certificate.

 

The certificate is exported in PKCS#12 format and can be converted to PEM using openssl through a linux box or using sslshopper.com.

 

The PEM format certificate can be opened in wordpad or notepad++ to view the private key.

 

I'm not sure of a password for the private key. If that is something set by the CA then the CA should be able to share that with you.
