How exactly would I generate a .key file and a .crt file from a .p12 file?


A little googling finds this

Hope it helps

edit: added fixed commands:

openssl pkcs12 -in filename.pfx -nocerts -out filename.key

openssl pkcs12 -in filename.pfx -clcerts -nokeys -out filename.crt 

OpenSSL can be downloaded here:

    Perfect answer with the commands added :) – Fela Maslen Aug 3 '12 at 0:37

    And if you want to save the key without a passphrase, add -nodes (no DES) before the -out. – jcaron Oct 23 '18 at 10:45
