Subject [GitHub] cordova-windows pull request: CB-8307: Adding a 25-year expiration...
Date Thu, 09 Apr 2015 18:49:05 GMT
Github user robpaveza commented on the pull request:
    I've updated the certificate with a new EKU.  That was my bad for not verifying build
with it.
    For future reference (in 24.5 years when someone is digging through the history to get
the correct commands...), the tools to generate the valid PFX for this are in the Windows
SDK.  The correct usage is:
    makecert -r -n "CN=Apache Cordova Team" -a sha256 -cy end -sky signature -eku,
-sv CordovaApp_TemporaryKey.pvk CordovaApp_TemporaryKey.cer
    pvk2pfx -pvk CordovaApp_TemporaryKey.pvk -spc CordovaApp_TemporaryKey.cer -pfx CordovaApp_TemporaryKey.pfx
    The makecert parameters are documented on MSDN, but it comes down to self-signed, end-entity,
signing, and the EKU parameters which I missed during the first commit (I thought makecert
added that via the -sky signature parameter).  The EKU is for Code Signing and Lifetime Signing.
