SignCSR Method

Creates a signed certificate from a CSR.

Syntax

certmgr.signCSR(CSR_Buffer, serialNumber, [callback])

Callback

The 'callback' parameter specifies a function which will be called when the operation completes (or an error is encountered). If the 'callback' parameter is not specified, then the method will block and will not return until the operation completes (or an error is encountered).

The callback for this method is defined as:

function(err, data){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'data' is the value returned by the method.

'err' has 2 properties which hold detailed information:

err.code
err.message

Remarks

This method will create a signed certificate from a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). CSR specifies the Certificate Signing Request to be signed.

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.

NOTE: This functionality is only available in Windows.
