Using an SSL Cert to connect to amazon EC2

Hi All,

We need to complete testing from the cloud so are going with Amazon EC2. I understand that I need a CA Cert to secure the communications.

Can someone confirm whether the Certs that the gen_ca_cert.exe creates can be used here or do I need to generate a security cert from an existing CA Cert?

My client does have a security cert that can be used, but they want me to provide an SSL Certificate Request (sometimes a .csr file?). But I can't find where to generate this.

Thanks in advance (Hopefully I get a response before these forums go read only tomorrow :))


Thanks, Brian.
