The different steps
To obtain an SSL certificate for IIS 2 to 6, the different steps are as follows:
  1. Creating a certificate
  2. Requesting a certification
  3. Certification of certificate on the server
If you are using IIS 7 or later, see Obtaining an SSL certificate with IIS 7.
Step #1: Creating a certificate
To create a certificate:
  1. Open Internet Service Manager ("Start .. Run": Inetmgr.exe).
  2. Select the Web site to secure (for example: "Default Web site").
  3. Right-click this site and select "Properties" from the popup menu.
  4. Select the "Directory security" tab:
    • Click the "Server certificate" button. A wizard starts.
    • Select "Create a certificate".
    • In the "Usual name of your site" pane: enter the name of your computer.
    • The wizard creates a text file named "certreq.txt" allowing you to ask for your certificate.
  5. Exit the properties of the Web server.
Step #2: Requesting a certification
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.
  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 previously created ("certreq.txt") 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). Don't forget to specify 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: Certification of certificate on the server
  1. Your certificate is in the email sent by VeriSign.
    • Select the part that looks like this.

      -----END CERTIFICATE-----
    • Copy the selected part into a new file named "Certif.cer" for example.
  2. Start the Microsoft Internet Service Manager ("Start.Run": Inetmgr.exe).
  3. Select the Web site to secure (for example: "Default Web site").
  4. Right-click this site and select "Properties".
  5. Select the "Directory security" tab:
    • Click the "Server certificate" button and follow the wizard.
    • Select "Process the request and install the certificate".
    • Select the file that was just created (Certif.cer).
    • End the wizard.
Important note: If a test certificate was already installed on this computer:
  • Remove the former certificate (select "Delete the certificate" in step 1).
  • Change the name of your computer (indeed, two test certificates cannot be installed on the same computer = same name).
  • Start again from step 1.
