An SSL certificate is a digital certificate installed on a server that enables user verifications and secure data exchange using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
To view the encryption and the hashing method used in the creation of the certificate
- Browse to the folder where the certificate is stored.
- When you create a SSL certificate, three files are generated:
Double-click the .crt file. The Certificate opens.
- a self-signed certificate file with a .crt extension
- a certificate key with a .key extension
- a certificate request file with a .csr extension.
- Click the Details tab to view the encryption and the hashing method used in the creation of the certificate. RSA-based certificate use Sha1 as the Thumbprint hashing algorithm and md5RSA as the Signature algorithm.
Note: EFT Server and Secure FTP Server use the same techniques for certificate management.
