  1. In the GUI configuration tool, go to SSL --> CA Tools

  2. Click Create RSA Key in the right pane (do not use the <Certificate wizard> link shown on the SSL page)
  3. Enter the Key Filename e.g. filename.key ; Key Size: 2048 ; Keep PEM as the key format and select DES3 for the PEM encoding algorithm ; Enter the PEM passphrase to protect the private key. Click Create, then Close

  4. Click Create Certificate Request on the CA Tools page. Type e.g. filename.csr for the request file name and e.g. filename.key for the key file name. Re-enter the PEM passphrase you created in the previous step
