Enable SSL for Artifactory


  1. Generate the CA key.
    openssl genrsa -out local.key 2040
    Generating RSA private key, 2040 bit long modulus (2 primes)
    e is 65537 (0x010001)

    The local.key file is generated.

  2. Generate a CA certificate request.
    ➜ zhengshu openssl req -new-key local.key -out local.csr
    req: Unrecognized flag new-key
    req: Use -help for summary.
    ➜ zhengshu openssl req -new -key local.key -out local.csr
    You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
    into your certificate request.
    What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
    There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
    For some fields there will be a default value,
    If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.
    Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:FR
    State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:FR
    Locality Name (eg, city) []:Surness
    Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:Talend
    Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []:Developer
    Common Name (e.g. server FQDN or YOUR name) []:RD
    Email Address []
    Please enter the following 'extra' attributes
    to be sent with your certificate request
    A challenge password []:tacadmin
    An optional company name []:tac

    The local.csr file is generated.

  3. Generate the CA root certificate.
    openssl x509 -req -in local.csr -extensions v3_ca -signkey local.key -out local.crt
    Signature ok
    subject=C = FR, ST = FR, L = Surness, O = Talend, OU = Developer, CN = RD, emailAddress =
    Getting Private key
    ➜ zhengshu l
    total 20K
    drwxrwxr-x 2 oem oem 4.0K 11月 9 16:06 .
    drwxr-xr-x 44 oem oem 4.0K 11月 9 16:06 ..
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 oem oem 1.3K 11月 9 16:06 local.crt
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 oem oem 1.1K 11月 9 16:04 local.csr
    -rw------- 1 oem oem 1.7K 11月 9 16:02 local.key
    ➜ zhengshu openssl genrsa -out my_server.key 2040
    Generating RSA private key, 2040 bit long modulus (2 primes)
    e is 65537 (0x010001)

    The local.crt file is generated.
