Creates a self-signed certificate and private key that can be saved in the EEPROM.
|length||Specifies the private key length in bytes. Valid values are between 2,048 and 4,096.|
|code||Specifies the country code in 2-character form.|
|org_name||Specifies the organization name. The organization name can be up to 64 characters long.|
|name||Specifies the common name. The common name can be up to 64 characters long.|
This command creates a self signed certificate and private key that can be saved in the EEPROM. The certificate generated is in the PEM format.
Any existing certificate and private key is overwritten.
The size of the certificate depends on the RSA key length (privkeylen) and the length of the other parameters (country, organization name, and so forth) supplied by the user. For an RSA key length of 4,096, the certificate length is approximately 2 Kb, and the private key length is approximately 3 Kb.
The following example creates an SSL certificate in the USA for a website called bigcats:
configure ssl certificate privkeylen 2048 country US organization IEEE common-name bigcats
This command was first available in the ExtremeXOS 11.2 and supported with the SSH module.
