|Summary||0001534: A proposal: submitting CSRs as files P10|
|Description||Utilites as Kleopatra produce CSRs n the P10 Binary format, other as the P10 Base64 format. The CAcert main web should accept such files and use a simple contents test with a simple conversion Binary --> Base64.|
|Steps To Reproduce||To submit a file is impossible in present. If the file has Base64 format, you are able to copy and paste its CONTENT only.|
|Additional Information||Most questions to Support are just about the impossibility of browsers to make a CSR.|
Make a CSR is complicated for a common user. Let's simplify that.
|Tags||Base64, CSR, P10|
We'll probably need a button to upload the file, since currently the CSR is entered by Copy/Paste which does not work for binary files.
If someone can look up the OpenSSL command line to do the conversation, please add it as a note here.
The following openSSL command will do that. I have tested it.
openssl req –in <your .p10 file> -inform der –out <a new file name>
and the new file name can have any extension (e.g. .csr)
|The topic was discussed at the developer meeting on 5 August 2021.|
