SSL Commands

I keep forgetting these one line OpenSSL commands – perhaps if they are here, I’ll remember —

  1. Create private key file : openssl genrsa -out server.key 2048
  2. Create certificate signing request (to send to e.g. GoDaddy) – openssl req -new -key server.key -out server.csr 
  3. Verify a certificate – openssl verify file.name
  4. To convert a .crt (base64 encoded) and .key file into a .pem file – just cat them together – cat something.crt something.key > something.pem
