Description

 
Before you purchase an SSL Certificate, you need to generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) for the server where the certificate will be installed. Select CSR generation instructions for your server software. 

If you have a Microsoft IIS 6.0 or 7.0 server, or a Red Hat server, we have a new Symantec SSL Assistant to help you automatically generate a CSR and install your certificate. 

If your server is not listed or you need additional information, refer to your server documentation or contact your server vendor. If you do not know what software your server uses, contact your technical support.
 
Instructions for Financial Certificates
 
If you plan to purchase a Financial or OFX SSL Certificate, follow instructions from these supported vendors: Generate a CSR for OFX SSL Certificates.
