The different steps
To get an SSL certificate for IIS 7 (and later), the different steps are as follows:
  1. Creating the certification request.
  2. Sending the certification request to an authority.
  3. Implementing the certificate.
IIS 7 can also be used to create a self-signed certificate.
Step #1: Creating the certification request
To create a certification request:
  1. Open Internet Service Manager ("Start .. Run": Inetmgr.exe).
  2. Select the current computer (the root of connections).
  3. Double-click "Server certificates".
  4. In the screen that is displayed, click the "Create a certificate request" link. A wizard starts.
  5. Fill the requested information and specify the name of file to generate.
Step #2: Sending the certification request to an authority
The certification request must be sent to a certificate authority (for example: www.verisign.com). This example presents the steps to follow to send a certificate request to Verisign. These steps are similar for the other authorities.
The different steps are as follows:
  1. In your browser, type: http://www.verisign.com
  2. Click "Free Trial". This option allows you to get a free certificate valid for 15 days.
  3. Fill out the short form and click "Submit".
  4. Follow the certification wizard step by step:
    • Step 1 of 5: Generate CSR: Click "Continue".
    • Step 2 of 5: Submit CSR: Copy the content of the file that was created beforehand (Step 1) into the input area and click "Continue".
    • Step 3 of 5: Complete Application: The content of the certificate is displayed, enter your personal details (Caution: the accented characters are not allowed, the information must be similar to the one found in the certificate content. Example: the area, the company.). Type your email address, the certificate will be sent to this address. Click "Accept".
The certificate will be sent to you within an hour.
Step #3: Implementing the certificate
The following operations must be performed:
  1. Your certificate is in the email sent by VeriSign.
    • Select the part that looks like this.
