SSL certificate installation

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have few queries regarding installation of SSL certificate.

  1. How much time will it take in installing the SSL certificate and getting the IIS https enabled?
  2. Is there any risk involved with the installation of SSL certificate that might bring down the applications hosted on the IIS.
  3. Will the application hosted on that IIS continue working with HTTP?(I don't want each application to be https enabled.)

Thanks in Advance

There are plenty of times when you need to get information on running processes, not the least of which is during performance tuning. Using the techniques in this article and special .NET classes you'll see how to get a process' ID, name, priority, number of threads, kernel handle, and memory consumption, as well as its user-mode, kernel-mode, and total elapsed running time and put them to use in a custom app called AssemblyBrowser.

MOSS 07 Installation Quirks - SSRS Connectivity & SSP Permissions

I'm new to MOSS 07 and am currently learning it.  I've done clean installs and post-install configuration a few times now and I've noticed 2 quirks associated with a fresh install.  I'm not sure what is going on or the best way to "fix" them.

1 - I install SQL 05 with SSRS prior to installing MOSS and I always check to make sure that SSRS is configured and I can connect to it in the SQL Management Studio.  Once the Default port 80 Web App is provisioned, however, I can no longer connect to SSRS via the SQL MS.  I understand that this is related to the fact that the default Web App that hosts the SSRS sites is the Default 80 Web Site and that this port is taken over by the SharePoint 80 portal.  My question is, how to handle this.  I understand that I can configure SSRS to run via SP Integration.  However, when I install SSRS 05 initially and prior to installing/configuring MOSS, should SSRS be installed under a separate Web App and Port than the Default?  Does SP Integration restore the ability to connect to SSRS via the SQL Mang. Studio?

2 - In an attempt to get used to a "production" way of doing things, I create Domain Service accounts for both installing MOSS and running the services.  My problem is with the results of using an installation account.  I call it "spinsta

Certificate API question - Private Key.

I am trying to follow http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.security.cryptography.x509certificates.x509certificate2.aspx but I am finding that the Private Key property of the certificate is always null. I created the certificate with makecert -pe -n "CN=BuySeasonsThirdParty" -r -b 08/26/2010 -e 08/26/2011 -sky exchange Amazon.cer. Then installing it on the local user store using: X509Store store = new X509Store(storeName, StoreLocation.CurrentUser); and using the same API to get the certificate from the store. The certificate that I retrieve from the store is non-null it is just the PrivateKey is null. So I can encrypt using something like: ((RSACryptoServiceProvider)cert.PublicKey.Key).Encrypt(Encoding.Unicode.GetBytes(text), true)   But since the Private Key property is NULL I cannot decrypt. Any ideas? Kevin

Certificate Signing Request Tool

Hi All, Currently there is a requirement in our application for creating a SSL Certificate Signing Request (CSR) message. Is it possible to develop one on .Net Framework 3.5 Some of the websites lilke Verisign do not mention any such procedure where they say that a custom tool is available apart from OpenSSL but they basically have provided a list all the webservers where their Digital Certificates are compatible and the instructions which say how the CSR's can be generated on these web servers.  I understand that the CSR contain the Web Server's public key, organization information and a unique match for server's private key. The certificates issued by the Certifying Authority  is used for Cient/Server authentication over TCP/IP. Look forward for some replies Thanks

SSL Using Server Created Certificate

We need to secure a SQL server using an SSL certificate and I understand there are a couple of ways of doing it.  One of which is having SQL Server generate a self-signed certificate which exposes the man-in-the-middle attack vulernability.  Thus we want to avoid this approach.  My question is, can we just allow the Windows Server 2003 we are running to be configured to be a Ceriifcate Authority and ust it create an SSL certificate.  Is that just a secure as getting an SSL certificate from a third party company such as Verisign?  If it is better to go with a third party company, how do you get a certificate from them when it is not going to be used for a website?
