Creating a Certificate for the CommServe

Self-signed certificate can be used to create trust for the CommServe. You can use OpenSSL to create self-signed certificate.

Procedure

  1. To create a 2048-bit RSA key, execute the following command:

    openssl genrsa –out client_private.pem 2048

  2. To create a self-signed certificate using the key created above, execute the following command:

    openssl req -new -x509 -key client_private.pem -out client.pem -days 365

  3. Follow the prompts. When prompted for the Common Name, enter the host name that you have specified when adding CommServe to the DSM. This name must be a perfect match.

    Two files client_private.pem and client.pem are generated. The client_private.pem file contains the key and the client.pem file contains the certificate.

  4. Copy the client_private.pemand client.pem files to CommServe machine.
