Zeus – Zeus


To generate a CSR, you will need to create a key pair for your server. These two items are a digital certificate key pair and cannot be separated. If you lose your public/private key file or your password and generate a new one, your SSL Certificate will no longer match and a replacement has to be made.

Step 1: Generate a 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. Open the Zeus Web Controller. For example: http://server:9090
  2. Click SSL Certificates > Certificates > Create
  3. Choose the option: Buy a certificate from another certifying authority.
  4. Fill out all fields for the Certificate Signing Request.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Save the CSR file to a safe location.
  7. Copy and paste the CSR into the enrollment pages.
