OpenSSL "ca" - Create CA Certificate for Testing
How to generate a new root CA certificate to test the OpenSSL "ca" command?
If you need some root CA (Certificate Authority) certificates for testing purpose, you can generate them using the OpenSSL "req" command as shown below:
C:\Users\fyicenter>\local\OpenSSL-Win32\bin\openssl.exe OpenSSL> req -x509 -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout my_ca.key -out my_ca.crt Generating a 1024 bit RSA private key ....++++++ ........................++++++ writing new private key to 'my_ca.key' Enter PEM pass phrase:fyicenter Verifying - Enter PEM pass phrase:fyicenter ----- You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated into your certificate request. What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN. There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank For some fields there will be a default value, If you enter '.', the field will be left blank. ----- Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:US State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:TX Locality Name (eg, city) :City Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:FYIcenter.com Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) :Security Common Name (e.g. server FQDN or YOUR name) :FYIcenter Root CA Email Address :firstname.lastname@example.org
