You can upload a certificate to Copaco VMware Cloud which you can use for serveral services within Copaco VMware Cloud


  • You need to have an active Copaco VMware Cloud subscription

  • Make sure you have your certificate and private key in PEM format.

  • If they are in PEM format make sure that you know the Private Key Passphrase

You can convert your certificate and private key to PEM by using for example OpenSSL.

Run openssl on a Linux server and convert the private keys and certificates

# Convert Private Key to pem-format
openssl rsa -in certificate.key -out certificate.key.pem

It will ask you to enter a passphrase (you need this passphrase later on)

# Convert Certificate to DER and to PEM
openssl x509 -in certificate.cer -out certificate.der -outform DER
openssl x509 -in certificate.der -inform DER -out certificate.pem -outform PEM
