creating csr


would only the creation of a new csr file cause the invalifation of existing certificates? thats very important because we have some lead time for the renewal of the certificates.

No, creating a CSR will not have any effect on current certificates unless your CA revokes them.

Creating a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) is a process that is typically used to obtain an SSL/TLS certificate for a website. Here are the steps to create a CSR:

Generate a private key: The first step is to generate a private key that will be used to sign the CSR. You can use a tool like OpenSSL to generate a private key. Here is an example command for generating a 2048-bit RSA private key:

Copy code
openssl genrsa -out private.key 2048
Create a CSR: Once you have a private key, you can use it to create a CSR. A CSR contains information about the website that will be used to generate an SSL/TLS certificate. Here is an example command for creating a CSR:

vbnet  BenefitsCal App

Copy code
openssl req -new -key private.key -out server.csr
This command will prompt you for some information about the website, such as the Common Name (CN), which is the fully qualified domain name for the site. You should also provide your contact information and organization details.

Submit the CSR to a Certificate Authority (CA): Once you have a CSR, you can submit it to a CA to obtain an SSL/TLS certificate. The CA will verify your identity and the information in the CSR before issuing the certificate.
