CSR Generation: IBM HTTP Server

Generating a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) using IBM HTTP Server

    1. Firstly, you must create a new key database. Start the 'IKEYMAN' software - either by running the command 'IKEYMAN' or loading the GUI version.
    1. Select 'Key Database File' from the main menu and choose 'New'.
    1. Choose and enter a new Key Database name. Click 'OK'.
    1. Now enter and confirm a password for the Key Database. Please ensure not to forget this password.
    1. Now we need to use the new Key Database to create a CSR. Start IKEYMAN again, select 'Key Database File' and choose 'Open'.
    1. Now enter the password from Step 4 and click 'OK'.

    1. Select 'Create' from the main menu, and choose 'New Certificate Request'.

    1. A form will appear, and all the fields require completion. Click 'OK' when completed. Notes on some of the fields are:
      • Key Label - simply a descriptive label for the CSR.
      • Keysize - we suggest the keysize be as large as possible, preferably 2048 bit.
      • Common Name - where you should enter the fully qualified domain name of the website you require the certificate for.
        Note: for wildcard certificates, the Common Name should be in the format: *
      • Country - the ISO-3166 two-letter country code for the country. 'US' for the USA, 'GB' for Great Britain, etc.
      • Certificate Request Filename - the path and filename for the CSR.

  1. Open the CSR file with a text-editor and copy and paste the contents into the enrollment form when requested.
