convert openssl key pair to PKCS #12 format

Posted by: admin  :  Category: Bits and Bytes

This command will convert a standard openssl key / cert pair into PKCS #12 format for use with Windows’ certmgr:

# openssl pkcs12 -export -in ssl.crt -inkey ssl.key -out ssl.p12

A password must be supplied during conversion as Windows’ certmgr will ask for a credential. It simply won’t accept an empty credential.

While importing in certmgr choose PKCS #12 format (.pfx or .p12 file extensions).
