How to check the details of a certificate requestLast Modified: Jun 22, 2012, 4:45 pm
If you have a certificate request, and want to see what information is set inside, you can use the "openssl" command with the "req" option to get you more info on the CSR.

[root@server]# openssl req -in /path/to/your/certificate.request -text -noout
