How to Generate Certificate Signing Request (CSR) in Citrix Access Gateway 5.0


This document provides CSR generation instructions using Citrix Access Gateway 5.0. If you are not able to perform the steps on your server, RapidSSL recommends to contact the server vendor or the organization, which supports Citrix Access Gateway.

NOTE: To generate a CSR, you will need to create a key pair for your server. These two items are a digital certificate key pair and cannot be separated. If you lose your public/private key file or your password and generate a new one, your SSL Certificate will no longer match. 

NOTE: All certificates that will expire after October 2013 must have a 2048 bit key size.
