I am trying to figure out how to set up my web application so that only clients (external) with issued certificates could access it. (on Windows7)
I have followd this tutorial where i got a .CER and .PVK that i could use for creating client certificates with makecert.exe
But the problem was that I could not import a .CER file to server. When i followed this tutorial i got an error
Cannot find the certificate request associated with this certificate file. A certificate request must be completed on the computer where it was created.
I was told that i have to create the .CER via CER Authority, so I got myself a Windows Server and installed Active Directory Certificate services where i first created the request in IIS and issued myself a .CER file that I could normally import in my IIS on Windows7.
But now when I try to create client certificates I am missing private key file.
Can some one please help me with this issue, since I have never fone this before and I am having trouble understanding the procedure.
