How do I create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) using Java Keytool?

Create an RSA key:

  • Type: keytool -genkey -alias <myAlias> -keyalg rsa
       Note: choose an alias name to use in place of <myAlias>
  • Enter a keystore password. This password will be used every time the keystore is accessed. This password will be used to create the CSR, and later to install the server certificate.
       Warning: do not lose this password. It is important to keep.
  • Additional information will then be asked. The answers here are unimportant, and any information will suffice.
  • Enter a key password. As it indicates, this can be the same as the keystore password.
Create a CSR with the created key:
  • Type: keytool -certreq -alias <myAlias>
       Note: <myAlias> is the same as what was used previously when creating the key.
  • When prompted, put in the keystore password. If you chose a different password for the private key, it will ask for that also.
  • The CSR text will be outputted to the screen.

The outputted CSR text is the information we will require you to provide during the online application for the server certificate.
