    Hello Impervians! 

    Our Support team receives questions on SSL Certificates daily, so we wanted to share the below frequently asked question for today's #ImpervaInsights to help those who are wondering the same thing! 

    We are trying to change our SSL certificate on our sites domain.com and domain.com. We have downloaded a PEM certificate which also contains the certificate chain. When we try to upload it through your system we are requested to upload the RSA Key. Can you please tell me which RSA key the system is referring to?

    What do our product experts have to say?​

    You may use the following instructions in order to extract the server cert & key from a PFX file:

    Get PFX key:
    openssl pkcs12 -in {CLIENT_CERTIFICATE}.pfx -nocerts -out {OUTPUT_KEY}.key

    * If the Key returns an error when uploading to Imperva, try exporting it using the following command instead:
    openssl pkcs12 -in {CLIENT_CERTIFICATE}.pfx -nocerts -out {OUTPUT_KEY}.pem -nodes

    Since the RSA key can only be supplied to you by your Certificate Authority, please contact the CA for assistance if needed.


    Are there any top-of-mind questions you have on SSL certificates?
