Introduction: 

How to regenerate CA XCOM SSL Sample Certificates on a Machine that already has SSL Certificates.

Background:  

If you need to run the makeca, makeclient and makeserver scripts again, you must delete the existing certificates

Instructions: 

** Be very careful with this **

  1. Manually delete the CERTS & PRIVATE subdirectories that are in the SSL subdirectory under your XCOM install directory.

  2. You also need to delete the following files:

    • all index.* files in the SSL subdirectory

    • all serial.* files in the SSL subdirectory

    • the random.pem files in the SSL subdirectory

  3. At this point you can run the makeca, makeclient and makeserver scripts again.
