    Default Can I use keytool generated certificate in IIS server?


    I need to enable SSL in IIS server. I have generated a keystore using java keytool and have exported the certificate from it. When I tried to use this certificate in IIS server, it says the private key is missing. Is there a way to export a private key from keystore? Or is there any way I can generate a certificate which can be used in IIS server?

    Thanks in advance...

    No - keytool generates SSL certs that work with Java, not IIS. A quick google search lead me to this link. If you've got IIS you've got all you need to generate a self-signed certificate.

    If you want a "real" certificate then you'll need to purchase one from the large number of online shops that sell them.
