Self-Signed Hard
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

You can also generate an SSL certificate with OpenSSL. This method gives you more control over your SSL certificate's details.


Download the latest OpenSSL version for Windows.


Open a command window (Windows key + R and type "cmd" then enter key.) and navigate to the directory containing OpenSSL. Type the following commands to generate the keys. You will need to enter a password during key creation. Replace "server" with your desired key name.


C:\OpenSSL-Win32\bin\openssl genrsa -out server.key 2048

C:\OpenSSL-Win32\bin\openssl req -new -key server.key -out server.csr -sha256

C:\OpenSSL-Win32\bin\openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in server.csr -signkey server.key -out server.crt


Combine the .key and .cert files you created into one file. To do this, use a text editor like notepad and paste the contents of both files into a new file named Fusion.pem (not Fusion.pem.txt).


IMPORTANT: The format for Fusion.pem must be:


-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

*certificate in here*

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

*RSA key in here*

-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
