  • what is included in SSL certificate in trusted root !?

    Hi,

    when I import a DER certificate (or any other format) to trusted root certification authorities,

    I want to know, what are the details included in these certificates usually,

    does it include private and public key, or only public key !?
    does it have any other contents ?

    appreciate if someone can brief it to me,


    thanks,

    You can open the certificate and see, but basically (for a trusted root certificate):
    The public key - no way will you get the private key
    The expiry date
    The CRL location
    Alternate names
    The issuer

    Private keys will only be stored for certificates you own
