I have installed openCA on my machine and now it's the time to install two
subCAs. For the time being, I will install both rootCA and two subCAs on
the same machine (now for testing) while I will be installing each on
different machine later on. What I did to issue subCAs are as below:
I went to "https://subca.localhost/pki" and then logged in. I went to
"Generate New CA Secret keys" and fulfil the form. Next I went to "Generate
new CA certificate request (use generated secret key)" option and fulfill
the fields as well. Later on, I chose "Export CA certificate request" to
export my request.
The request was successfully generated and located in "/tmp/openca_local".
Next I did as follows:
tar xvf openca_local
and then copy the content into a new file called: "subca.pem"
Having done that, I went to "https://rca.loalhost/pki/pub" and logged in.
>From there, I went to "Request a Certificate" option, I went to "Server
Certificate Request" and I chose that pem file (subca.pem) and fulfil the
rest of fields.
Now when I went to "https://rca.localhost/pki/" and go to "CA
Operations/Certification Request/New" to issue the certificate, there is no
certificate in the list to select and issue. As far as I know, the request
has to be shown up there to move on and issue. I've got no idea why it does
Any idea where is the problem? And what shall I do to solve the problem?
Looking forward for your comments and suggestions. Please let me know if
there are some ambiguous parts or you need more explanation.
