Nortel – SSL accelerator


To generate a CSR, you will need to create a key pair for your server.

Generate a Key Pair and Certificate Signing Request

NOTE: A key length of 1024 bit is the default, but Geotrust recommends the use of a 2048 bit key.

If the request is intended for an Extended Validation certificate or a certificate with a validity period beyond December 31, 2013, the 2048 bit key length will need to be selected.

  1. Click SSL > Certificates > Generate > Request.
  2. Select your newly created certificate identifier in the drop-down menu at the top.
  3. Fill out the fields including the common name, organization and location information.
  4. Select the bit length.
  5. Click Update.
  6. Click Apply button on the top of the screen.
  7. To copy and paste the information into the enrollment form, open the file in a text editor that does not add extra characters (Notepad or Vi are recommended).
  8. Click Apply Changes.
  9. Copy and past the CSR into the enrollment pages.
