If organization policy requires you to include a certificate signing request (CSR) with your client certificate order, create your CSR. Learn how to Create a CSR (Certificate Signing Request).
In the sidebar menu, hover over Request a Certificate. Then, under Client Certificates, select the client certificate you want to order.
On the Request a Client Certificate page, under Certificate Settings, provide the certificate details:
Under Order Options, in the Automatic Renewal dropdown, select how often you want the certificate to be automatically renewed.
Under Certificate(s) to Request, enter the Recipient Details:
If you are using a CSR to order your certificate, upload or paste your CSR in the Recipient CSR box.
We use the Public Key embedded in the CSR to create your client certificate. All other fields in the CSR are ignored.
Your CSR must include the
-----BEGIN NEW CERTIFICATE REQUEST----- and
-----END NEW CERTIFICATE REQUEST----- tags.
To add additional client certificate recipients, click the Add Another Certificate link and enter the recipient’s Recipient Details.
Select Payment Method
Under Payment Information, select a payment method to pay for the certificate:
The Deposit link takes you to another page inside your CertCentral account. Any information entered in the request form will not be saved.
Certificate Services Agreement
Read through the agreement and check I agree to the Certificate Services Agreement above.
Click Submit Certificate Request.
You'll be taken to the certificate’s Order # details page where you can see the status of the email address verifications.
Each email address listed in the certificate request is sent an email containing a link so the recipient can validate that they own that email address. If the certificate recipient loses a validation email, you can resend it. See How to Resend an Email Validation for DigiCert "Client Certificate" Email.
After all email addresses are validated, a link will be sent to the first email address on the list so the recipient can create their client certificate.
If you submitted a CSR, the client certificate will be attached to the client certificate issued email.
