Binding SSL Certificate to Azure Web Application

Posted: November 11, 2017 in Azure

In this post we created Azure Web application and mapped it to our custom domain name,in this one we’ll secure our site with SSL certificate.In real world we should use SSL cert from commercial trusted Certification Authorities, in this example i used self-signed certificate , just for testing purposes.

Create certification request, create file with inf or txt extension

[NewRequest]

Subject = "CN=ASTRAHOME.XYZ"
Exportable = TRUE
KeyLength = 2048
KeySpec = 1
KeyUsage = 0xA0
Provider	Name="Microsoft RSA Channel Cryptographic Provider"
ProviderType = 12
HashAlgorithm = SHA256
RequestType = Cert
ValidityPeriod = Years
ValidityPeriodUnits = 1
MachineKeySet = true
[EnhancedKeyUsageExtension]
OID=1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.1

Open CMD as admin and type:

certreq -new ssl.inf ssl.crt

Now open Certificate manager-Computer account

Our certificate should be created under Personal-Certificates

Now, export it:

5

Select Include all certificates in the certification path if possible

and Export all Extended properties

 

6

And save it somewhere

In Web app properties click SSL Certificates-Upload certificates

 

7

Browse to path where you exported certificate

 

 

9

Click Add binding

Select hostname and certificate,leave SSL type-click Add binding

Because it’s self-signed certificate we get warnings, but we can access to web app using HTTPS access
