    Hi all

    Browsers complains about self signed certificates so I would like to ask how can I export certificate for using to import as trusted certificate to browser. Here is export of cerficate for Outlook http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2202
    .. and something simmilar I need for IE, FF.. :)

    EDIT: Probably I need PEM or DER Encoded X.509 certificate .. but I don't know how export this :(

    Thanks for any help

    Untested solution:

    Creating Certificate Authority (CA):

    openssl genrsa -des3 -out my-ca.key 2048
    openssl req -new -x509 -days 3650 -key my-ca.key -out my-ca.crt

    openssl x509 -in my-ca.crt -text -noout
    Creating certificate for Apache:

    openssl genrsa -des3 -out server.key 1024
    openssl req -new -key server.key -out server.csr
    openssl x509 -req -in server.csr -out server.crt -sha1 -CA /root/CA/my-ca.crt -CAkey /root/CA/my-ca.key -CAcreateserial -days 3650

    openssl x509 -in server.crt -text -noout
    Creating certificate for client:

    openssl genrsa -des3 -out client.key 1024
    openssl req -new -key client.key -out client.csr
    openssl x509 -req -in client.csr -out client.crt -sha1 -CA /root/CA/my-ca.crt -CAkey /root/CA/my-ca.key -CAcreateserial -days 3650
    openssl pkcs12 -export -in client.crt -inkey client.key -name "Client certificate" -out client.p12
    I'll test this solution in future .. it is short copy of this howto http://www.linpro.cz/pokrocile/apache/apache-a-ssl.html
