Self-signed certificates

mailinglists-2
Good evening,

Is a difference between:
        openssl req -x509 ...
and:
        openssl ca -selfsign ...
?

I can use a certificate created using the first way as certificate in the
CTL of MS IIS ver. 5.1 while the second one is rejected with the error
message "Only self-signed certificates are added to the CTL." Maybe anyone
has an idea...

Best Regards,
Yves

You can check the certificate structure using the command:
openssl asn1parse -in cert.pem
... and compare it with the structure of the first one.

I think you only forgot some command switch.
