Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 440688
The genkey does not work with serial number
Last modified: 2013-04-12 15:39:42 EDT
The serial number of the certificate must be different or Firefox refuses to
show a page that is transferred by SSL with another certificate with the same
serial number. See bug #151190.
Please create an input field to write down a serial number in genkey program.
Thanks for the report; this seems reasonable.
This bugzilla was reviewed by QE as a non-FasTrack request.
It has since been proposed for FasTrack. The qa_ack has
been reset. QE needs to re-review this bugzilla for FasTrack.
The current genkey in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 applies a random serial number to generated certs; we have no plans to add this feature in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 - please consider upgrading.
