Question: Applications > Utilities > Keychain Access


Need to create a CSR and per the instructions here it says that I highlighted in red Keychain Access drop down menu select Keychain Access.

I don't have any drop down at all. Can anyone help here? Thanks.

To manually generate a Certificate, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) file from your Mac. To create a CSR file, follow the instructions below to create one using Keychain Access.

Create a CSR file.

In the Applications folder on your Mac, open the Utilities folder and launch Keychain Access.

Within the Keychain Access drop down menu, select Keychain Access > Certificate Assistant > Request a Certificate from a Certificate Authority.

  • In the Certificate Information window, enter the following information:
    • In the User Email Address field, enter your email address.
    • In the Common Name field, create a name for your private key (e.g., John Doe Dev Key).
    • The CA Email Address field should be left empty.
    • In the "Request is" group, select the "Saved to disk" option.
  • Click Continue within Keychain Access to complete the CSR generating process.
