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?

A) Convert with OpenSSL
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:

1
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

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

B) Convert with Certum’s Online Tool
If you cannot use OpenSSL, conversion is also possible through an online tool (provided by the Certificate Authority Certum):
Certum PFX Online Generator

To use the online generator please:

1) Copy & paste your certificate and intermediate certificate in the first field
2) Copy & paste your private key in the second field
3) Enter a secure password
4) Click the “Generate” button
Download the PFX file and install it on your server.
