Websphere SSL Certificate CSR Creation

How to generate a CSR for IBM Websphere

Note: The following instructions are for IBM Websphere 6.0x. You can use them for older versions of Websphere but there are some small interface differences.

The first step is to create a keystore, a file that contains the certificates and private key. You will create the keystore with IBM's Key Management Utility, which comes installed with WebSphere:

  1. Start the Key Management Utility (iKeyman).
  2. In the IBM Key Management Utility, click on Key Database File and then New.

  3. Choose Key database type and select JKS. Give the keystore a name such as your_domain.jks.
  4. Click the Browse button. Go toC:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\default\etcor to a different location where you want to store your keystore file.

  5. Click OK. Enter a password and click OK.
  6. Click Create then New Certificate Request to bring up the Create New Key and Certificate Request dialog.
  7. Type a Key LabelCommon NameOrganizationLocalityState, and select a Country. Select 2048 for Key Size. For common name enter the fully qualified domain name for the site you are securing (e.g. www.yourdomain.com). If you are generating a Websphere CSR for a Wildcard SSL Certificate make sure your common name starts with an asterisk (e.g. *.example.com).

  8. Browse for a location and enter a name for the file such as your_domain.csr and click OK.
  9. You can now open that file in a text editor and paste it in to order your SSL certificate from E-Tugra.
