After you create a signature configuration file for your local private key, you can convert this configuration into a signature request file.

To create a signature request file, execute the following command:

openssl req \
  -key LOCAL_PRIVATE_KEY \
  -config SIGNATURE_CONFIG_FILE \
  -new \
  -nodes \
  -out SIG_REQUEST_FILE

Where:

This command creates a *.csr file with the name you specified.
