On this Part 2: We are going to get our CER and PFX to be used for Azure.
Create Certificate Signing Request
There is a tool available thru Digicert website or you can do it manually over IIS. Since my target is to install this in Azure, I chose to use the tool they provided.
Lets use a Windows PC. So I will not have IIS Manager access to my Azure Website so we need to generate the certificate and then install it.
Download the tool, extract and run.
Click the SSL Certificate tab and click Create CSR.
This reminds me of the IIS Manager Create Certificate Request action but it should be straight forward. Click SSL and then make sure that your info is correct. Then click Generate.
Then copy the result to a notepad or clipboard can be enough.
Login back to your Digicert account and click the status of your order. There should be a Pending CSR there.
This opens up a pane and you can paste the CSR here.
I chose IIS 10 and then clicked continue.
Then viola, CSR Completed. This will then trigger an email where your .CER will be attached.
Unzip this to get the .CER and some instructions.
Go back to the DigiCert certificate tool and then import the CER. You need to get the *PFX out of this CER.
Once you clicked next, just enter your friendly name and then finish. It should show on the utility.
Now lets export the PFX, just highlight the certificate and then click Export.
Export the private key, use PFX and all path if possible. Click Next.
Yes, like the MMC, you need to provide a password since you are exporting the private key as well.
Then save the PFX File to a location where you will pick up to install in AZURE.
You can now close this tool. Thanks DigiCert!
