download private key on clearpass 6.7

On clearpass 6.6 when you generate the request you were able to download the private key  as on the button it says download csr and private key.   On 6.7 it just says download CSR

 

How do i get the private key?

this was really useful to me when generating some .pem files

 

Cheers

After you install the signed cert, you can export it. There is no need to access the private key until the signed certificate is installed.

Re: download private key on clearpass 6.7

So there is no way to do that anymore?

 

And ineed it before because for example if i want a certificate for many controllers and use the same certificate what i did was signing a doing the request

it get signed

 

With that i opened a textpad

Put all the characters of the private key

then of teh signed cert

and then the characters of the ca bundle then i put it as a .pem file and i can use that same cert in many controllers. instead of doing them separately

 

So as you see i dont actually install that cert anywhere before creating the .pem flile

1) you should never be using the same certificate in ClearPass and network devices

2) you can't do any of that until you have a signed certificate which is why there is no need to present the private key prior to uploading signed certificate

Same issue here, running 6.7 and I'm trying to import the signed request but it keeps complaining about needing the private key as well.

It’s asking for the key to import on 6.7. I have issued a csr twice using an easy to remember pass phrase and it is not using a “saved” key but instead asking for the file. 

 

Thanks in advance!
