I am facing some problems in cerating private key and self signed certificate
The symbian help file prescribed the following procedure:
I am using the folowing command to gernerate key and certificate:The process is:
Invoke the Certificate Generator on the command line, specifying the name of the private key and certificate to be generated, and the given distinguished name string.
Generate the private key, when prompted, by inputting random data to the window using the mouse. The MSDOS property QuickEdit must be turned off for this mouse mechanism to work.
makekeys -cert -dname "CN=WiShare OU=S
ymbian OR=TCSL CO=INDIA EMemail@example.com" WiShare.key WiShare.cer
and then typing the random charecters, they appear on the screen. I am confused here as the procedure says "Generate the private key, when prompted, by inputting random data to the window using the mouse." I am not very clearly understanding, How I can enter 1024 charecters using mouse!!!
Finally as I am using this procedure, the following statements appear and without waiting for my input goes to the prompt.
Warning: the private key should be encrypted with the -password option
Do you want to use a password (y/n)?
The result is that there is no key or certificate file generated at all.
Also I have tried to compile using the -password option but this time eventhough the keys and certificate are generated, when I do compile the sis file and port it onto device while installation it gives System error -6 !
Thanking you all in anticipation,
