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 your CertCentral account, in the sidebar menu, click Certificates > Orders.
On the Orders page, in the Order # column, click the certificate's order number link.
On the Order # details page, the Certificate Actions dropdown, select Renew Certificate.
On the Renew Client Certificate page, under Certificate Settings, provide the certificate details for your renewal:
Under Order Options, in the Automatic Renewal dropdown, select how often you want the certificate to be renewed.
Under Certificate(s) to Request, enter the recipient's details:
If you are using a CSR to create 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 Add Another Certificate and enter the recipient’s details.
Select your 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 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 with 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.
On the Orders page (Certificates > Orders), the certificate should be listed with the Status of Pending.
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 included a CSR with your order, the client certificate will be attached to the final email.
