When you order a certificate the private key is generated locally by a browser plugin, JAVA or ActiveX, it's true private and not even the certificate issuer knows it. Where the private key can be found depends on the OS and/or browser used for the order. The matching private key for that certificate has to be exported whether it's stored in a file or in the system. When you export a certificate on windows you are asked whether or not the private key should be exported as well if any is accociated with the certificate, but only if is was installed as exportable, otherwise there's no way to get it out of the system again. > > Actually, the problem comes from me or the customer ? I don't know? If you don't have the matching private key for that certificate it's useless. -- Arno Garrels -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://lists.elists.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
