CSR-Sybase EA Server

To generate a CSR, you first need to create a key pair for your server. These two items are a digital certificate key pair and cannot be separated. If you lose your public/private key file or your password and generate a new one, your SSL Certificate will no longer match your private key. You will have to request a new SSL Certificate and may be charged.

The CSR needs to contain the following attributes:

- Country Name (C): Use the two-letter code without punctuation for country, for example: US or CA.
- State or Province (S): Spell out the state completely; do not abbreviate the state or province name, for example: California.
- Locality or City (L): The Locality field is the city or town name, for example: Berkeley.
- Organization (O): If your company or department has an &, @, or any other symbol using the shift key in its name, you must spell out the symbol or omit it to enroll, for example: XY & Z Corporation would be XYZ Corportation or XY and Z Corportation.
- Organizational Unit (OU): This field is the name of the department or organization unit making the request.
- Common Name (CN): The Common Name is the Host + Domain Name. It looks like “www.company.com” or “company.com”.

Note: VeriSign certificates can only be used on Web servers using the Common Name specified during enrollment. For example, a certificate for the domain “domain.com” will receive a warning if accessing a site named “www.domain.com” or “secure.domain.com”, because “www.domain.com” and “secure.domain.com” are different from “domain.com”.

VeriSign recommends that you contact Sybase for additional information.
Generate a Private Key Pair

1. Run the Security Manager application.
2. Select the Private Keys folder.
3. Select File > Key/Cert Wizard.
4. Supply the required information. Use Back and Next to review or change any information.
5. Click Finish to exit the wizard. Security Manager generates the key pair and saves the certificate request to a file that you specify.
6. Go to the enrollment form and paste the information into the form when prompted for the CSR.

The new private key appears on the right side of the window when you highlight the Private Keys folder. Once the certificate is received and installed, the private key is removed from the private key list.

Note: For Extended Validation certificates the key bit length must be 2048.
