How to generate a CSR from a Self Generated Palo Certificate

Hi There,

I am struggling to generate the CSR for a self generated certificate on a Palo firewall (this is the first time I am doing it).  I did look into all the documents in the knowledge base and they seemed to be very confusing. 

I have generated two certificates (one for captive portal and the second for SSL-VPN) using the Palo's Generate option under Certificates.  I now need to generate a CSR for these two certificates in-order to hand them over to the customer so that they can get them signed by their CA. 

I am not very comfortable with OpenSSL and I tried my best with IIS.  I used trial tools provided by Symantec as well and nothing helped me. 

Any ideas of how this can be achieved?

Many Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Kalyan

Kalyan...At this time, we only support generation of self-signed certificates and you will need to gen the CSR from an external source like OpenSSL or IIS.  We are adding CSR generation in our next OS target for this summer.

Thanks.

Well, I managed to generate a new certificate using IIS then get the CSR out of it.  Don't know if that was correct.  I looked into the following link for generating the CSR:

That is good news for the summer.  I am actually hoping to even hear an upgrade on ARP cache limit for a PA-500 in the next OS release.

You're correct and the ARP cache will double in the next OS :smileyhappy:

I won't say that then :smileyhappy:  You should contact your Palo Alto Sales team for more information.
