Vmware Openssl


Self-signed certificate using OpenSSL is used in this post to demonstrate SSL certificate replacement for ESXi hosts in VMware Cloud Foundation. Create a self-signed certificate using OpenSSL Pre-requisites: Before we begin, ensure that the OpenSSL binaries are installed before executing OpenSSL commands mentioned below. Adam Langley discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled memory when parsing DSA private keys. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause OpenSSL to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-0705) Guido Vranken discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled hex digit calculation in the BNhex2bn. Changing the default certificate on the VMware App Volumes can be done in a few steps. To speedup this process make sure that you’ve got a SSL certificate with a private key and the openssl tool for doing the converting. Good Luck with changing the certificate! I then created 'C: Program Files VMware Infrastructure Inventory Service bin' and copied the openssl.exe and three DLL files (as mentioned above) to this location. Running repoint.cmd from 'C: Program Files VMware Infrastructure VirtualCenter Server ssoregtool ssosvccfg' then worked perfectly for me. VMCA uses the OpenSSL default, which is 10 certificates. Certificates with wildcards or with more than one DNS name are not supported. You cannot create subsidiary CAs of VMCA.

This topic provides an example of setting a self-signed certificate using OpenSSL for the Integration Broker server that you deployed for the Citrix-Workspace ONE Access integration.

  1. Create a self-signed certificate for the Integration Broker server.
  2. Create the ibcerts folder to use as the working directory.
  3. Create a configuration file using the vi openssl_ext.conf command.
    1. Copy and paste the following OpenSSL commands into the configuration file.

      # openssl x509 extfile params

      extensions = extend

      [req] # openssl req params

      prompt = no

      distinguished_name = dn-param

      [dn-param] # DN fields

      C = US

      ST = CA

      O = VMware (Dummy Cert)

      OU = Horizon Workspace (Dummy Cert)

      CN = hostname (Virtual machine hostname where the Integration Broker is installed. )

      emailAddress = EMAIL PROTECTED

      [extend] # openssl extensions

      subjectKeyIdentifier = hash

      authorityKeyIdentifier = keyid:always

      keyUsage = digitalSignature,keyEncipherment


      [policy] # certificate policy extension data

      Note: Type the CN value before you save the file.
    2. Run this command to generate a private key.
    3. Type the passphrase for server.key, for example, vmware.
    4. Rename the server.key file to server.key.orig.
    5. Remove the password associated with the key.
  4. Create a CSR (certificate signing request) with the generate key. The server.csr is stored in your working directory.
  5. Sign the CSR.

    The expected output displays.

    Signature ok subject=/C=US/ST=CA/O=VMware (Dummy Cert)/OU=Horizon Workspace (Dummy Cert)/CN=w2-hwdog-xa.vmware.com/emailAddress=EMAIL PROTECTED Getting Private key

  6. Create P12 format.
    1. Press Enter at the prompt for an export password.
      The expected output is server.p12 file.
    2. Move the server.p12 file to the Windows machine where Integration Broker is installed.
    3. From the Command Prompt, type mmc.
    4. Click File > Add or Remove Snap-ins.
    5. In the Snap-in window, click Certificates and click Add.
    6. Select the Computer account radio button.
  7. Import the certificate into the root and personal store certificates.
    1. Choose All Files in the dialog.
    2. Select the server.p12 file.
    3. Click the Exportable check box.
    4. Leave the password blank.
    5. Accept the defaults for the subsequent steps.
  8. Copy the certificate into the Trusted Root CAs in the same mmc console.
  9. Verify that the content of the certificate includes these elements.
    • Private key
    • CN in the subject attribute that matches the Integration Broker Host Name
    • Extended key usage attribute with both client and server authentication enabled
