Convert files

Using a utility such as OpenSSL and the private key the Requester generates the PKCS#12 (pfx) and PEM/DER files by entering the following commands from a Command Window:

  1. Convert PKCS#7 file to a temporary PEM file.

    To use OpenSSL, open a Command Window and enter the following:

    openssl pkcs7 -in mycompany-license.p7b -inform DER -out mycompany-license-temp.pem \ 
    -outform PEM -print_certs 
    
    NOTE

    This temporary PEM contains your certificate and the certificates for Intermediate CAs. Use these certificates to generate the PFX file.

  2. Convert the temporary PEM file to a PFX file.

    To use OpenSSL, open a Command Window and enter the following:

    openssl pkcs12 -export -inkey mycompany-license.key -in mycompany-license-temp.pem \ 
    -out mycompany-license.pfx -passin pass:private_key_password -passout pass:pfx_password 
    
  3. Convert the temporary PEM file to a final PEM file.

    To use OpenSSL, open a Command Window and enter the following:

    openssl x509 -in mycompany-license-temp.pem -inform PEM -out mycompany-license.pem -outform PEM 
    
    NOTE

    Although not required, Adobe recommends using different passwords for the private key (private_key_password) and the PFX (pfx_password).

    This final PEM file contains only your certificate.

  4. Convert the PEM file to a DER file.

    To use OpenSSL, open a Command Window and enter the following:

    openssl x509 -in mycompany-license.pem -inform PEM -out mycompany-license.der -outform DER 
    
    NOTE

    DER files are required only for the HTTP Dynamic Streaming packager.
