I needed to convert a client certificate .p12 file to .pem and I did it with the following command:
openssl pkcs12 -in combo.p12 -out combo.pem
Importing .p12 to Firefox for test works, I am asked for my passphrase and after entering my data it's then imported, but importing the .pem file does nothing, just nothing happens.
Format of my produced .pem certificate (... for sensitive data):
Bag Attributes friendlyName: cn=... localKeyID: ... Key Attributes: <No Attributes> -----BEGIN ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY----- (my encrypted data) -----END ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY----- Bag Attributes friendlyName: cn=... localKeyID: ... subject=C = .... issuer=.... -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- (my encrypted data) -----END CERTIFICATE-----
The source here https://knowledge.digicert.com/solution/SO5437.html says Firefox should support both .pem and .p12 and Firefox import file prompt offers "PKCS12 File" and "Certificate File" options in the file filter menu.
I can also use .p12 with PHP (CURL) and SoapUI and not my .pem file (SoapClient) with either.
Alternatively, if this isn't really an issue, how can I verify if my .pem file is fine? I tried:
openssl verify combo.pem
error 20 at 9 depth lookup: unable to get local issuer certificate error combo.pem: verification failed
