Subject RE: Creating CSR for Purchasing SSL Certificate from VeriSign
Date Fri, 23 Dec 2011 21:26:59 GMT
Hi Conway,

All depends on your server setup. If you have Tomcat 'behind' Apache, NginX or IIS you should
generate csr and install certificate on those software which is on front of Tomcat. If you
have only Tomcat on the server you should familiarize with Tomcat+SSL guides. As a example
you can take following blog entry:

CSR is generated per certificate, so if you have another ssl certificate for sure you will
need to create another csr.

Subject: Creating CSR for Purchasing SSL Certificate from VeriSign


We are running a Tomcat website on Windows 2008 R2. The SSL certificate for
this website has expired. Instead of renewing the SSL certificate from the
current SSL provider, we want to buy new SSL certificate from VeriSign.

We are aware that we need to first generate a Certificate Signing Request.
I've landed on this page:
ge=content&id=AR235> &id=AR235

This page has a list of links for the instructions of different types
server. My question is, should I go for Apache (ApacheSSL mod_ssl ),
Microsoft (Windows 2008 - IIS 7.0), or Tomcat (Tomcat)?

Also, if we later add another Tomcat site (with a different domain name) on
the same Windows 2008 R2 server,  do we have to generate another CSR to
purchase another SSL certificate?

Any suggestion is very much appreciated.
