How to Generate a CSR for AWS Services

To learn more about CSRs and the importance of your private key, reference our Certificate Signing Request (CSR) Overview article. If you already generated the CSR and received your trusted SSL certificate and need help with installation, reference our SSL Installation Instructions.

1. OpenSSL

For Amazon Web Services, we recommend generating your CSR via OpenSSL, which is a widely used software for SSL services. Please view our CSR Generation Instructions in OpenSSL support article for detailed instructions on how to complete this step.

2. Reference Amazon’s Documentation

Because Amazon Web Services involves a variety of web hosting services, we recommend consulting Amazon’s documentation to fully understand generating/uploading/configuring SSL on their various platforms. Because every AWS user takes advantage of different services and configurations, there will be no one-size-fits-all solution.

3. Validate & install

After you have received your CSR, and have enrolled your order, your certificate will enter the validation process with the issuing Certificate Authority (CA) and require the certificate requester to complete some form of validation. For information regarding the different levels of the validation process and how to satisfy the industry requirements, reference our validation articles.

After you complete the validation process and receive the trusted SSL Certificate from the issuing Certificate Authority (CA), proceed to the next step using our SSL Installation Instructions for Amazon Web Services.
