KeyUsage = 0xa0

ProviderName = "Microsoft RSA Schannel Cryptographic Provider"

ProviderType = 12

  • How should this template be used?

  • 1. Save the file as a .INF

    2. Open a command prompt and run the following

    3. certreq -new myreq.inf.

    4. Choose an output file and that’ll be a text file with your output cert.
