Use the J2SE keytool command to generate a certificate signing request (CSR) for the self-signed certificate you generated in the preceding section.
Information about the keytool command can be found at
Here is an example:
keytool -certreq -keyalg RSA -alias imq -file certreq.csr -keystore /etc/imq/keystore -storepass myStorePassword
This generates a CSR encapsulating the certificate in the specified file (certreq.csr in the example).
Use the CSR to generate or request a signed certificate.
You can do this by either of the following methods:
Have the certificate signed by a well known certification authority (CA), such as Thawte or Verisign. See your CA’s documentation for more information on how to do this.
Sign the certificate yourself, using an SSL signing software package.
The resulting signed certificate is a sequence of ASCII characters. If you receive the signed certificate from a CA, it may arrive as an e-mail attachment or in the text of a message.
Save the signed certificate in a file.
The instructions below use the example name broker.cer to represent the broker certificate.
