Bulk Enrollment of Organization Validation (OV) S/MIME Certificates

SSL.com provides bulk ordering and enrollment of Organization Validation (OV) S/MIME certificates through our bulk order tool. This guide will walk you through the enrollment of recipient information and the bulk ordering process.

Bulk Enrollment Instructions

  1. Login to your SSL.com account.
  2. Click the Orders tab followed by the S/MIME or Client enrollment on the left sidebar.
  3. On the enrollment page, select Organization Email on Step 1: Select Product.
  4. Under Step 2, place all the email addresses that will be issued with OV S/MIME certificates. You have two options for this: 
    1. Click the radio button for *Email Address List and in the box, place the email address as well as First and Last names of the persons who will be assigned to each email address. First Name, Last Name, and email address should be separated by a comma. Each entry should be separated by a new line.

    2. Click the radio button for .csv file upload. The CSV file should have the following columns for First Name, Last Name, Email, Country, and Csr. Each column should be filled out except for Csr. You can use a ready template for this by clicking the Download an example csv link. 


  5. Choose the duration of the certificates under Step 4: Select Duration (this is labeled as Step 3 if you chose the CSV file upload method) and then proceed to click the Next >> button.
  6. Your orders are now created. You can proceed to pay for them by clicking the link labeled THIS INVOICE.

  7. After paying for your orders, SSL.com will proceed to validate the orders. 

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.
