So I'm working an on a new project that consuming Web Services (WSDL) through a Gateways Service. I need to provide username & password PLUS a Client Certificate X.509 as they are enforcing Mutual TLS connection. 


However, I have found plenty of examples in creating a self-assigned certificate but the Gateway Service provider requires that the Client Certificate need to be issued via a 3rd Party Trusted Certificate Authority. Which CA providers will issue an x.509 Client Certificate? 


Historically I've used LetsEncrypt, but they don't offer this kind of service.  


What do I need to google for?

Xero has an example of creating the necessary cert for their application 

 

 

 

openssl genrsa -out privatekey.pem 1024

 

openssl req -new -x509 -key privatekey.pem -out publickey.cer -days 1825

 

openssl pkcs12 -export -out public_privatekey.pfx -inkey privatekey.pem -in publickey.cer

 

But their example publickey.cer file says it's not trusted.

Google 'managed PKI'. Probably outrageously expensive though.

Or, if you have your own server, create your own CA, get it signed by the many CA's out there and then create any type of certificate you want?

lcl is correct, you will need to do it based on the IP/Domain that is consuming the resource otherwise it will fail as in be untrusted.   x.509 Client Certificate is just a PEM format is it not?  If so namecheaps commodo can provide those.

I guess this where I'm getting confused. I have not found one CA that will Issues Client Certificates/Mutal Certificates/M2M/X.509.  Have found lots of instructions about creating the Self-assign certs but they just say "Get this assigned by a trusted CA", but how?

  1. Install your own CA (certificate authority)
  2. Create a CSR (certificate signing request) on your CA and submit to your favourite Third party CA. They will have instructions available for your platform.
  3. Follow these instrcutions to create a code signing template: https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/windows-itpro-docs/blob/master/windows/device-security/device-guard/optional-create-a-code-signing-certificate-for-windows-defender-application-control.md
  4. Issue code signing template and verify the previous step worked.
  5. Modify / create new template matching your requirements.
  6. Profit
