Certificate Request Management

In public key infrastructure (PKI) systems, a certificate signing request (also CSR or certificate request) is a message sent from an applicant to the registration authority of the public key infrastructure to apply for a digital identity certificate.

Certificate Requests

Import Certificate Request

SambaBox Certificate Authority needs the request file to be able to sign certificate requests. You can perform this file sending process by selecting the relevant file from the file send box on the Requests tab and using the [Upload] button.


With the OpenSSL library, you can create CSR on your server with the following command.

openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout $(hostname -f).key -out $(hostname -f).csr

Signing / Deleting Certificate Request

After the certificate requests are received on the SambaBox, you can sign them using the [Sign] button or delete them using the [Delete] button.
