Generating your OV S/MIME Certificate

  1. When an order has been validated by SSL.com, the recipient address  will receive an email with a link to generate the certificate. Click the link.
  2. Click the Generate Certificate button to generate a new certificate signing request (CSR), certificate, and private key.
  3. Text fields containing the new CSR, certificate, and private key will appear.
  4. To download a PFX file containing your new certificate and private key to your computer, create a password of 6 characters or more, then click the Download button. Remember this password. You will need it when you install the certificate and key on your computer. Also, it is very important that you keep your private key secure and do not lose it. SSL.com does not ever see or handle your private keys and cannot help you recover a lost key (it will be generated in your browser, on your own computer). Without your private key you will not be able to digitally sign email or read email that has been encrypted with your public key. Even worse, anyone with your private key will be able to assume your identity for signing email messages and client authentication.
