Creating certificate requests When WAS is required to service a production environment requiring SSL, you will need to import SSL  certificates. These certificates come from your trusted certificate authority. You must first generate a  certificate request from WAS. The request process creates the appropriate public and private keys required.  The  Certificate Signing Request (CSR ) will contain the public key that has been certified by the CA  provider. The CSR is then manually sent to our CA provider and a certificate is generated for you. Once you  receive the CSR signed with your new certificate, it needs to be imported into WAS.
