I think I need help with the syntax used to generate a Certificate Request. I used the first command as follows:
1. openssl genrsa -des3 -out mywebserver.key 1024
The mywebserver.key file is not created, but a 1024 file is. So then I tried the following:
2. openssl req -new -key mywebserver.key -out mywebserver.csr
but the mywebserver.key file obviously does not exist, so it fails. I then tried the following, replacing the mywebserver.key with 1024 (since the 1024 file exists):
3. openssl req -new -key 1024 -out mywebserver.csr
The webserver.csr is then generated, but I am receiving an error from the certificate authority stating the request needs to be 1024 of higher to continue the process.
Any help is appreciated.
