Download Certificate as PFX (PKCS12) file

What is the PFX or PKCS12 format?

PFX format is commonly used to bundle the private key with the associated certificate and all other certificates in the certificate chain.

Where can I download my certificate as PFX file?

It is mandatory that the PFX format contains the private key.
However, the private key is never transmitted to us or the Certificate Authority during the configuration process for security reasons.

Since we do not know your private key, it is also technically impossible to provide a PFX file for download.

How to convert the certificate to PFX?

Option 1: Convert with OpenSSL command-line (Linux, Mac)

You can convert the certificate using the free, open source software OpenSSL which is available for many platforms.
Download a pre-compiled binary for Windows here: https://wiki.openssl.org/index.php/Binaries

To convert your certificate to PFX, run the following command:

openssl pkcs12 -export -out certificate.pfx -inkey private.key -in certificate.crt -certfile CACert.crt
openssl pkcs12 -export -out certificate.pfx -inkey private.key -in certificate.crt -certfile CACert.crt

certificate.pfx: new certificate (in PKCS12/PFX format)
private.key: private key file
certificate.crt: certificate file
CACert.crt: intermediate certificate file

Option 2: Convert with OpenSSL GUI (Windows)

You can also download the software tool YAOG which provides a graphical interface to OpenSSL from Github or our SSLPOINT Mirror.
