CreateCertificate Method

Creates a new self-signed certificate in the current store.

Syntax

public fun createCertificate(certSubject: String?, serialNumber: Int)

Remarks

This method creates a new self-signed certificate in the current store, containing the following:

CertSubject specifies the subject of the new certificate. A new keyset (public/private key pair) is generated and associated with the new certificate.

The certificate subject is a comma separated list of distinguished name fields and values. For instance "CN=www.server.com, OU=test, C=US, E=support@nsoftware.com". Common fields and their meanings are displayed below.

FieldMeaning
CNCommon Name. This is commonly a host name like www.server.com.
OOrganization
OUOrganizational Unit
LLocality
SState
CCountry
EEmail Address

If a field value contains a comma it must be quoted.

SerialNumber specifies the certificate serial number. All certificates signed by the same issuer must have different (unique) serial numbers.

The time validity of the new certificate is determined by the CertValidityTime configuration setting, and the key size by the CertKeyLength configuration setting.
