Instructions for creating .pem SSL

You are here:

SSL-PEM (Concatenated Certificate Container Files) files are often required for certificate installations when multiple certificates are imported as one file.

This article contains several instructions that describe different scenarios for creating PEM files.

 

Create a PEM with the entire SSL certificate trust chain

  1. Log in to your Secorio management solution and download your intermediate (Sectigo.crt), root (TrustedRoot.crt) and primary certificates (your_domain_name.crt).
  2. Öffnen Sie einen Texteditor (z. B. ein Wordpad) und fügen Sie den gesamten Text jedes Zertifikats in der folgenden Reihenfolge in eine Textdatei ein:
    1. Das primäre Zertifikat – Ihr_Domänenname.crt
    2. Das Zwischenzertifikat – crt
    3. Das Stammzertifikat– crt

Make sure that the start and end tags are included in each certificate. The result should look like this:

—– BEGIN CERTIFICATE —–
(Your primary SSL certificate: your_domain_name.crt)
—– END CERTIFICATE —–

—– BEGIN CERTIFICATE —–
(Your intermediate certificate): SectigoCA.crt)
—–
END CERTIFICATE —– —– START CERTIFICATE
-
(Your root certificate: TrustedRoot.crt)
—– END CERTIFICATE —–

Save the combined file as your_domain_name.pem . The PEM file can now be used.

 

 

 

Create a PEM with the server and intermediate certificates

  1. Log in to your Secorio management solution and download your intermediate certificates (Sectigo.crt) and primary certificates (your_domain_name.crt).
  2. Öffnen Sie einen Texteditor (z. B. ein Wordpad) und fügen Sie den gesamten Text jedes Zertifikats in der folgenden Reihenfolge in eine Textdatei ein:
    1. Das primäre Zertifikat – Ihr_Domänenname.crt
    2. Das Zwischenzertifikat – crt

Make sure that the start and end tags are included in each certificate. The result should look like this:

—– BEGIN CERTIFICATE —–
(Your primary SSL certificate: your_domain_name.crt)
—– END CERTIFICATE —–

—– BEGIN CERTIFICATE —–
(Your intermediate certificate): SectigoCA.crt)
—– END CERTIFICATE —–

Save the combined file as your_domain_name.pem . The PEM file can now be used.

 

 

Create a PEM with the private key and the entire chain of trust

  1. Log in to your Secorio management solution and download your intermediate certificates (SectigoCA.crt) and primary certificates (your_domain_name.crt).
  2. Öffnen Sie einen Texteditor (z. B. ein Wordpad) und fügen Sie den gesamten Text jedes Zertifikats in der folgenden Reihenfolge in eine Textdatei ein:
    1. Der private Schlüssel – Ihr_Domänenname.schlüssel
    2. Das primäre Zertifikat – Ihr_Domänenname.crt
    3. Das Zwischenzertifikat – crt
    4. Das Stammzertifikat– crt

Make sure that the start and end tags are included in each certificate. The result should look like this:

—– BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY —–
(Your private key: your_domain_name.key)
—– END RSA PRIVATE KEY —–

—– BEGIN CERTIFICATE —–
(Your primary SSL certificate: your_domain_name.crt)
—– END CERTIFICATE —–

-

START CERTIFICATE —– (your intermediate certificate: Sectigo.crt) —– END CERTIFICATE- —-
—– START CERTIFICATE —–
(Your root certificate: TrustedRoot.crt)
—– END CERTIFICATE —–

Save the combined file as your_domain_name.pem . The PEM file can now be used.
