SSL Certificates - ca.key, ca.csr & ca.crt questions

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Following commands will generate ca.key and ca.csr. # openssl genrsa -out ca.key 2048 # openssl req -new -key ca.key -out ca.csr Please correct me as required : Above two can be sent to Certificate Authority to generate a ca.crt. This ca.crt can be applied into the Linux server or load balancer. Say this ca.crt was applied in Linux, is there a way to re-export this applied ca.crt to load balancer or is there no such thing ? I still haven’t got the full concept of SSL Certificates. (HowTos)
