    • Modify the request section as follows:
      [v3_req]
      basicConstraints = CA:FALSE
      keyUsage = keyEncipherment
      extendedKeyUsage = serverAuth
  3. Generate a certificate request as follows:
    openssl genrsa –out [servername].private 2048 openssl req –new –outform PEM –out [servername].request –keyform PEM –key [servername].private ...
