Generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR)

ZEUS Web Server v3


To generate a CSR, you will need to create a key pair for your server. These two items are a digital certificate key pair and cannot be separated. If you lose your public/private key file or your password and generate a new one, your SSL Certificate will no longer match. You will have to request a new SSL Certificate and may be charged.

GeoTrust recommends that you contact the Zeus vendor for additional information.

Step 1: Generate a Certificate Signing Request

  1. Open the Zeus Web Controller. For example: http://server:9090
  2. Click SSL Certificates > Certificates > Create
  3. Choose the option: Buy a certificate from another certifying authority.
  4. Fill out all fields for the Certificate Signing Request.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Copy and paste the CSR file to a safe location and go to the Enrollment.
  7. Go to Enrollment.

Terms Defined

Common Name

The Common Name is the Host + Domain Name. It looks like "" or "".

GeoTrust certificates can only be used on Web servers using the Common Name specified during enrollment. For example, a certificate for the domain "" will receive a warning if accessing a site named "" or "", because "" and "" are different from "".
