Answer

The keycert.exe application is used to manage keys for SSL transactions. It can be used in any of three ways:

  1. To apply keys previously obtained from a certifying agency
  2. To generate requests for keys to send applications to a certifying agency ? please take careful note of the password used as it will be required when applying the full keys
  3. To generate private keys for use on your system ? while these keys are useful, especially for testing, as they are not issued by a certifying authority they will nto be automatically accepted by clients. Normally though the clients will present a dialog box allowing the key to be accepted.
