Creating a CSR on the FortiGate
To create a CSR:
- On the FortiGate, go to System > Certificates and select Generate to create a new CSR.
- Once created, the certificate will show a Status of Pending. Highlight the certificate and select Download.
Enter a Certificate Name (my-csr), the public IP of the FortiGate (172.25.176.127), and a valid email address.
Make sure to set Key Type to RSA and Key Size to 2048 Bit. This will ensure the certificate is securely encrypted.
This will save a .csr file to your local drive.
