Credentials that have to be issued:

Step 3: Generate Private Key

You should create your public key certificate in PEM and CRT formats.

Info

.pem — (Privacy-enhanced Electronic Mail) Base64 encoded DER certificate, enclosed between '-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----' and '-----END CERTIFICATE-----'

.crt — usually in binary DER form, but Base64-encoded certificates are standard too

Create or update with your actual data config.dat file in OpenSSL directory.

File Example
[ req ]
prompt	= no
distinguished_name	= req_distinguished_name

[ req_distinguished_name ]

#Country
CN=UA
#Region
ST=Kiev
#City
L=Kiev
#Organization name
O=ORGANIZATION
#Department
OU=ECOMMERCE
#Certificate name (your name)
CN=YOUR_NAME
#Email
[email protected]

Run the command in a terminal (pay attention that you should replace 'your_merchant_id' in filenames by the actual Merchant ID number):

openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:4096 -sha1 -keyout 'your_merchant_id'.pem -config config.dat -out xs_'your_merchant_id'_cert.crt

openssl rsa -in 'your_merchant_id'.pem -pubout > 'your_merchant_id'.pub

Save the obtained PEM file. And also, send the obtained CRT file to the processing centre of Forward Bank for checking messages' authenticity on the gateway.
