Article: How to request an SSL certificate from a certificate authority
I have an exported (exported from windows server) .pfx file of a security certificate which issued from a certificate authority. I need to import this certificate to a wowza server which is running on a different windows 2008 server. Our plan is to use cupertinostreaming through https for iphones.
I think you have to generate certificate per domain. If you the new server will be using the same domain as cert was generated for, should be no problem. Otherwise, you need a new one.
This is a wildcard certificate which already being used in two sub domains on a windows web server (iis). Therefore, it cab be used in sub domains.
For ex: https://sub1.mydomain.com and https://sub2.mydomain.com are already set up and working.
My quesion is how to import an exported .pfx file in to wawza server to use https cupertino streaming ??
.pfx file exported from windows 2008 and wawza is also running on windows 2008 but in a different box.
Can you please help ??
The easiest way to encrypt Cupertino streams is with AES encryption. There are two methods:
Otherwise, for SSL cert, I don't know how to help beyond pointing to the above article.
I am already using AES encryption (external method) for streaming. Streaming plays withn an App and it is encrypted.
However, we need to protect the streaming url itself as someone (a middle man) could grab the url and play it somewhere else.
I see. This is the guide we have for SSL certs. I don't have much (any) experience to add.
SSL for video recording application
I am trying to implement SSL for video recording application on wowza server latest version.
Steps I did:
The certificate was previously generated with this command:
openssl genrsa -des3 -out www.affectiva.com.key 2048
Then I've got certificate and chain_file from Certificate Authority:
And executed this steps to import them:
keytool -import -alias root -trustcacerts -file [filename-of-chain-certificate] -keystore ssl.mycompany.com.cert
keytool -import -alias wowza -trustcacerts -file [filename-certificate] -keystore ssl.mycompany.com.cert
Now connection to the server times outs without even geting to the hand shake.
What I am doing wrong?
I'm not sure about this. I don't know
I have two certificates. One is the trial certificate that has been issued by the trust certificate authority(thawte.com). Another one is issued by the private certificate authority.Can I use these certificate to the Wowza media system? If I apply one of these certificates to the Wowza server, the working of SSL communication on the Wowza media system has no problem?
