HTTPS request using certificate authentication

Hi everybody,

We have to send a file thru https to a partner (Our IS is the client). The server uses certificate authentication, so our partner provided us a certificate in .pfx format. We extracted the Public key using Internet Explorer and tested the URL using the extracted certificate. It worked without problems.

We have a Flow service which performs a and the http post. The problem we have is that this service also requieres a private key.

Should I request the private key to the partner? Isn’t the private key supposed to be… you know… private? Is there any way to extract the private key using OpenSSL?

Thanks in advance for your help!

This is the private key for your IS server, not your partner.
