Creating a PEM file from PFX

Posted: March 2, 2012 in Uncategorized

Many systems such as networking kit and ILO cards insist on using PEM format certificates which is a problem if you are a pure Microsoft environment as it doesn’t output in this format. You will need to use OpenSSL 

Having installed the cert created Certreq you can use the certificates MMC to export it http://support.microsoft.com/kb/232136.

openssl pkcs12 -in cert.pfx -out cert.pem -nodes
