NGINX – Easiest way to setup SSL using .pfx files

Installing OpenSSL with PowerShell and Chocolatey

Assuming you have installed Chocolatey using the installation instructions, your first task is to install OpenSSL on Windows 10. To do this, open up your PowerShell console and run 

choco install OpenSSL.Light

We’ll start by extracting the CRT file using openssl with the following command

openssl pkcs12 -in ./YOUR-PFX-FILE.pfx -clcerts -nokeys -out domain.crt

Followed by extracting the private key with the following command

openssl pkcs12 -in ./YOUR-PFX-FILE.pfx -nocerts -nodes -out domain.rsa
