Certificates can be added in several places in the TPM portal:
- Add Certificates for a Partner Profile: Can be a private certificate (.pfx) or a public certificate (.cer)
- Specifying AS2 Receive Settings: If the message will be signed, a public certificate (.cer) is needed. If the message will be encrypted, a private certificate (.pfx) and its password are needed.
- Specifying AS2 Send Settings: If the message will be signed, a private certificate (.pfx) and its password are needed. If the message will be encrypted, a public certificate (.cer) is needed.
A certificate may also have a .p7b extension. In this scenario, import the .p7b certificate and then export it to a .pfx or .cer format using the steps below.
To import a .p7b certificate
Open the Microsoft Management Console (MMC.exe). To do this, go to Start, Run and type mmc.exe.
In the MMC, go to the File menu and click Add/Remove Snap-in.
In Available snap-ins, click Certificates and click Add. Select My user account, Service account or Computer account. Choose any option. We are importing the .p7b certificate only so we can export it.
Expand Certificates and choose any folder. For example, select Personal. We are importing the .p7b certificate only so we can export it.
Right-click the folder, click All Tasks and click Import. This opens the Certificate Import Wizard:
Browse to the .p7b certificate file. In the Open window, select All Files from the filter drop-down and then click the .p7b certificate.
Select the Certificate store to put the .p7b certificate. For example, select Personal.
Expand the Certificate store folder. The imported .p7b certificate is now displayed in the Certificates folder.
- Click Next.
Once imported, the .p7b certificate can now be exported to a .cer or .pfx format.
To export a .p7b certificate as .cer or .pfx
Right-click the imported .p7b certificate, click All Tasks and click Export. This opens the Certificate Import Wizard:
Select the .CER or .PFX option. To determine which option to choose, see Add Certificates for a Partner Profile, Specifying AS2 Receive Settings or Specifying AS2 Send Settings.
- Browse to the path to store the exported certificate and enter a File name. Click Save.
Click Next and then Click Finish to close wizard.
- Click Next.
The exported certificate resides in the folder you specified.
When a certificate is exported in the MMC, the original certificate remains in the certificate store.
