Generate a CSR code on a Nutanix cluster

CSR or Certificate Signing Request is a block of encoded text containing your website and company details. You need to submit it to your CA for validation during the SSL order process.

You have two options:

  1. Use our CSR Generator to create the CSR automatically.
  2. Follow our step-by-step tutorial on how to generate CSR on a Nutanix cluster.

Now, you can open your newly generated CSR file with any text editor of your choice. You’ll have to copy-paste its whole content, including the BEGIN header and END footer into the corresponding field on your SSL vendor’s ordering page.

Alternatively, you can use an easier option and generate your CSR code automatically, with the help of our CSR Generator tool.
