Not able to install SSL certificate


Hello,

This is shekar from India.

I have a Oracle Apps Instance running in a Linux machine. I have
router box(acting like a proxy server). i have a client machine. i am accessing the Oracle Apps server from the client machine browser through
the box. Box has SSL facility built in. It provides the SSL conectivity to the backend servers like Oracle Apps server running on Linux platform.


I would like to install SSL certificates
in the box.

I did the following

1. Downloaded Open SSL tar ball.

2. Installed it in Linux machine.

3. Generated the certificate request by

perl CA.pl -newreq

openssl> req -config /etc/openssl.cnf -new -keyout newreq.pem -out
newreq.pem -days 365

4. After that got a file newreq.pem which contains RSA key and a
certificate request.

5. Pasted the certificate request in Verisign site and got a certificate
signed by Verisign(CA).

6. Installed the certificate in box(proxy server).


In the box(SSL built in) i.e proxy server i have facility for uploading

trusted certificate
key
certificate

How to get trusted certificate from verisign site?

If i access the URL(Oracle Apps in Linux) from the client browser through
the box, SSL handshake is failing.

Do i need to install the certificate in the Linux server(Oracle apps running) also beside installing it in the box(proxy server).

I am not able to understand this problem?

My mail id is shekar_300@123india.com. Could you please help me out.


With Regards,

shekar

AFAIK the SSL cert should go on the Oracle box. Also IIRC due to the nature of how SSL works, some kinds of proxying will most likely not work.

Verisign has documented the process for ordering certs. With all due respect, please read them.
