During my search, I found several ways of signing a SSL Certificate Signing Request:
openssl x509 -req -days 360 -in server.csr -CA ca.crt -CAkey ca.key -CAcreateserial -out server.crt
openssl ca -cert ca.crt -keyfile ca.key -in server.csr -out server.crt
Note: I am unsure of the use of the right parameters for this one. Please advise correct usage if I am to use it.
What way should one use to sign certificate requests with your Certification Authority? Is one method better than the other (for example, one being deprecated)?
