Step 1 of 4: Transfering PKCS#12 bundle to your computer
Your certificate and private key must be located in the .globus directory in your home. In the standard LCG setup your private key is found at: ~/.globus/userkey.pem and your certificate at: ~/.globus/usercert.pem.
In order to import your private key and certificate in your browser you must create a pkcs12 bundle. This can be achieved by issuing the command:
- openssl pkcs12 -export -in ~/.globus/usercert.pem -inkey ~/.globus/userkey.pem -name "My Certificate" -out mycertificate.p12
After issuing the above command, you will be asked to enter the pem pass phrase. This is the pass phrase you entered during the initial process of creating the certificate request. Next you will have to enter an export password for the pkcs12 bundle and you will have to use it during the import procedure.
Transfer the pkcs12 bundle to your computer.
