mkdir (directory name)
cd (directory name)
cp /export/certificate/ .
./ –newca
cd demoCA/private
cp /export/certificate/Somedirectory/ROOT_CA_KEY.pem
cp ROOT_CA_KEY.pem cakey.pem
chmod 775 cakey.pem
cd ..
chmod 775 cacert.pem

./ -newreq
Passphrase : Demo
Country: US
State: New York
City: Anytown
Some Corporation
some Generic Certificate Authority (usually a server)

./ –signCA
PassPhrase: Demo

newreq.pem is key with CSR request inside
newcert.pem is certificate
