This year the global sign renewal process was straight forward. I received an email to install my certificate by clicking on a link in the email.
The GlobalSign website was rendered in my firefox browser and the following sequence ensued:
- I was asked for my certification installation password.
- A new view appeared requesting I create a password for the certificate being issued
- The password had to be a minimum of 12 characters
- Then a view appeared requesting that I download my certificate
Download Certificate View:
This downloaded the adobe air issued certificate onto my pc (filename format was gscertificate.pfx). I then brought up my firefox browser. Selected Tools>Options>Advanced>Certificates which rendered the following view:
I then selected the View Certificates button. Which brought up a dialog window with a listing of currently installed certificates and where I could select the import button.
Once imported, the adobe air signing certificate was installed into the browser from which I could then backup the signing certificate for use in an adobe air application by selecting the export button and saving the certificate as a adobecert.p12 file.
