    #openssl req -x509 -days 1289 -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout /tmp/root_key.pem -out /tmp/root_req.pem

     This will create the following files:

    • /tmp/root_key.pem – contains the private key encrypted with the password you specified

  3. Copy the files from the IWSVA server to your local machine. You may use winscp.
