If you are reissuing your Code Signing (CS) certificate for the Sun Java platform, you must submit a certificate signing request (CSR) with your request. However, you can include a CSR with your request for any platform.
To remain secure, certificates must use at least a 2048-bit key size. For more information and instructions about creating a CSR, see Create a CSR (Certificate Signing Request).
In your CertCentral account, in the left main menu, click Certificate > Orders.
On the Orders page, click the order number link for the Code Signing certificate you want to reissue.
On the Order details page, in the Certificate Actions dropdown, select Reissue Certificate.
Add Your CSR
Upload or paste your CSR in the Add Your CSR box.
The Sun Java Platform is the only platform that requires you to submit a CSR with your request; for all other platforms, submitting a CSR is optional.
In the dropdown, select a signature hash for the certificate: SHA-256 or SHA-1.
Select the platform you want to use your reissued certificate with.
Reason for Reissue
Specify the reason for the certificate reissue.
Click Request Reissue.
An approval for your CS certificate reissue may be required. If an approval is required, the CS verified contact for the organization is sent an email informing them that they need to approve the certificate reissue request. Once we receive their approval, we'll reissue your Code Signing certificate.
After we reissue your certificate, you'll need to install it. See our Install a Code Signing certificate instructions.
