1.2.2. Server Certificates

Next, we will generate a certificate and private key for the server:

./build-key-server myservername

As in the previous step, most parameters can be defaulted. Two other queries require positive responses, "Sign the certificate? [y/n]" and "1 out of 1 certificate requests certified, commit? [y/n]".

Diffie Hellman parameters must be generated for the OpenVPN server:


All certificates and keys have been generated in the subdirectory keys/. Common practice is to copy them to / etc/openvpn/:

cd keys/

cp myservername.crt myservername.key ca.crt dh2048.pem /etc/openvpn/
