DESCRIPTION

The New-SelfSignedCertificate cmdlet creates a self-signed certificate for testing purposes. Using the CloneCert parameter, a test certificate can be created based on an existing certificate with all settings copied from the original certificate except for the public key. The cmdlet creates a new key of the same algorithm and length.

Delegation may be required when using this cmdlet with Windows PowerShell remoting and changing user configuration.

EXAMPLES

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\> New-SelfSignedCertificate -DnsName "www.fabrikam.com", "www.contoso.com" -CertStoreLocation "cert:\LocalMachine\My"

This example creates a self-signed SSL server certificate in the computer MY store with the subject alternative name set to www.fabrikam.com, www.contoso.com and Subject and Issuer name set to www.fabrikam.com.

EXAMPLE 2

PS C:\> Set-Location -Path "cert:\LocalMachine\My"
PS Cert:\LocalMachine\My> $OldCert = (Get-ChildItem -Path E42DBC3B3F2771990A9B3E35D0C3C422779DACD7)
PS Cert:\LocalMachine\My> New-SelfSignedCertificate -CloneCert $OldCert

This example creates a copy of the certificate specified by the CloneCert parameter and puts it in the computer MY store.

EXAMPLE 3

PS C:\>New-SelfSignedCertificate -Type Custom -Subject "E=patti.fuller@contoso.com,CN=Patti Fuller" -TextExtension @("2.5.29.37={text}1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.4","2.5.29.17={text}email=patti.fuller@contoso.com&upn=pattifuller@contoso.com") -KeyUsage DataEncipherment -KeyAlgorithm RSA -KeyLength 2048 -SmimeCapabilities -CertStoreLocation "Cert:\CurrentUser\My"

This example creates a self-signed S/MIME certificate in the user MY store. The certificate uses the default provider, which is the Microsoft Software Key Storage Provider. The certificate uses an RSA asymmetric key with a key size of 2048 bits. This certificate has the subject alternative names of patti.fuller@contosol.com and pattifuller@contoso.com.

This command does not specify the NotAfter parameter. Therefore, the certificate expires in one year.

EXAMPLE 4

PS C:\>New-SelfSignedCertificate -Type Custom -Subject "CN=Patti Fuller,OU=UserAccounts,DC=corp,DC=contoso,DC=com" -TextExtension @("2.5.29.37={text}1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.2","2.5.29.17={text}upn=pattifuller@contoso.com") -KeyUsage DigitalSignature -KeyAlgorithm RSA -KeyLength 2048 -CertStoreLocation "Cert:\CurrentUser\My"

This example creates a self-signed client authentication certificate in the user MY store. The certificate uses the default provider, which is the Microsoft Software Key Storage Provider. The certificate uses an RSA asymmetric key with a key size of 2048 bits. The certificate has a subject alternative name of pattifuller@contoso.com.

The certificate expires in one year.

EXAMPLE 5

PS C:\>New-SelfSignedCertificate -Type Custom -Subject "CN=Patti Fuller,OU=UserAccounts,DC=corp,DC=contoso,DC=com" -TextExtension @("2.5.29.37={text}1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.2","2.5.29.17={text}upn=pattifuller@contoso.com") -KeyUsage DigitalSignature -KeyAlgorithm ECDSA_nistP256 -CurveExport CurveName -CertStoreLocation "Cert:\CurrentUser\My"

This example creates a self-signed client authentication certificate in the user MY store. The certificate uses the default provider, which is the Microsoft Software Key Storage Provider. The certificate uses an elliptic curve asymmetric key and the curve parameters nist256, which creates a 256-bit key. The subject alternative name is pattifuller@contoso.com.

The certificate expires in one year.

EXAMPLE 6

PS C:\>New-SelfSignedCertificate -Type Custom -Provider "Microsoft Platform Crypto Provider" -Subject "CN=Patti Fuller" -TextExtension @("2.5.29.37={text}1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.2","2.5.29.17={text}upn=pattifuller@contoso.com") -KeyExportPolicy NonExportable -KeyUsage DigitalSignature -KeyAlgorithm RSA -KeyLength 2048 -CertStoreLocation "Cert:\CurrentUser\My"

This example creates a self-signed client authentication certificate in the user MY store. The certificate uses the Microsoft Platform Crypto Provider. This provider uses the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) of the device to create the asymmetric key. The key is an RSA 2048-bit key that cannot be exported. The subject alternative name is pattifuller@contoso.com. The certificate expires in one year.

EXAMPLE 7

PS C:\>New-SelfSignedCertificate -Type Custom -Container test* -Subject "CN=Patti Fuller" -TextExtension @("2.5.29.37={text}1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.2","2.5.29.17={text}upn=pattifuller@contoso.com") -KeyUsage DigitalSignature -KeyAlgorithm RSA -KeyLength 2048 -NotAfter (Get-Date).AddMonths(6)

This example creates a self-signed client authentication certificate in the user MY store. The certificate uses the default provider, which is the Microsoft Software Key Storage Provider. The certificate uses an RSA asymmetric key with a key size of 2048 bits. The subject alternative name is pattifuller@contoso.com.

This command specifies a value for NotAfter. The certificate expires in six months.
