The first step in requesting an SSL certificate for a Java based Web server, is to generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) using Java Keytool–a tool in the Java Development Kit (JDK). We strongly recommend that you create the CSR on the Web server where the certificate will be installed to avoid moving your private key, but it can be created on any computer with the JDK installed. To create the CSR, you need to run a Java Keytool command containing the required certificate information. Entrust has created this page to simplify the process of creating this command. Please fill out the following form and click Generate to obtain the Java Keytool command for your CSR.


Copy the text displayed below and paste into a command line on your server to obtain your CSR. See below for more detailed instructions.
