Copy Private Key from an ACS Appliance?

Answered Question
Feb 6th, 2007

Having created a Self Signed Certificate (SHA1, 1024bits) on an ACS Appliance (v4), is it possible to get a copy of the Private Key off the Appliance? We want to do this for DR purposes, but haven't yet been able to find a way?

Any help, much appreciated!

Thanks,

Rich..

I have this problem too.

Hi Rich.

Its possible to export Self Signed certificate and private key to a FTP server.

Thanks for that amkrish.

Building on this, we now have a situation where we need to backup the Private Key that is generated during the Certificate Signing Request from the CSACSE. I've looked in the CSR sections of the document you recommended, but haven't found anything?

It seems that you can't do what I'm asking(?), so presumably we have to just take note of the certificate credentials and password so we can re-produce it in the future?

Thanks,

Rich..

But again we need to take note of the password.

Since we have the certificate , private key and the password , i think we can reproduce in future also.
