Did your SSL Certificate get issued to you in a format that’s not compatible with your server type? Don’t worry, our SSL Converter tool can easily fix that for you. Simply find your current file format, select the format you would like to convert it to, selection your certificate file and click the convert button. Voila! Your SSL Certificate has now been converted into a compatible format!

To enable encryption on the site, different servers require different formats of SSL certificates. SSL converter changes 6 format files in an easy and fast way. Choose the one which is required: PEM, DER, PKCS#7, P7B, PKCS#12 or PFX.

If your certificate was issued in the format not compatible with the server, convert it below:

If your certificate was issued in the format not compatible with the server, convert it below:

  • Find current type,
  • Check the new format,
  • Select your certificate file,
  • Click convert button.

DER formatIt is a binary form of PEM. It has extension .der or .cer.

DER is typically used with Java platforms. Converter can change the type of certificate to this format – to change a private key, please use OpenSSL commands.

PKCS#7 or P7B formatIs usually stored in Base64 format and has extension .p7b or .p7c. Files in this format contain lines "-----BEGIN PKCS7-----" and "-----END PKCS7-----". This format is just for certificates, not for private key.

PKCS#7 and P7B are installed on Microsoft Windows and Java Tomcat servers.

PKCS#12 or PFX format Is binary format storing the server certificate, intermediates certificates, and private key in one file. Usually has the extension .pfx or .p12. Typically are used on Windows machines.

When converting PFX format to PEM, in one file will be included all certificates and private key. To separate it, you need to open this file in a simple text editor, copy every single part (with BEGIN and END lines) to different files and save it as certificate.cer, CACert.cer and privatekey.key.
