Generating a CSR for UW IMAP

Note: UW IMAP uses OpenSSL http://www.openssl.org/ 

Step 1: Create your private key   - without a password - (security is provided through the file permissions)

openssl genrsa -out imapd.pem <key_size>
Step 2:  Create your CSR:
openssl req -new -key <new.key> -out <new.csr> 
Enter all the required information for the CSR file.

 

Step 3: Once the CSR fiel is generated, open it and copy and paste the entire content (including the dashed lines at the beginning and the end)  in the enrollment for at Networking4all and submit it with your certificate order.
