Page: File Format
On page "File Format" the user can define the format of the output file and other additional properties for object export. If the user exports a certificate from storage, then it is possible to use CER (according X.509) or P7C (according PKCS#7) as an output file. It is possible to save only one certificate to the CER file. When exporting more certificates from storage to a file, there is automatically selected output file format P7C (according PKCS#7). If the user exports a private key, then there is automatically preset output file format P12 (according PKCS#12). In case of a private key export, it is not possible to select other output file format than P12. The private keys are protected by a password in this type of file that secures the safety of the exported key against abstraction. If the user exports the list of revoked certificates from storage, then there is a preset selection that he can not change, similar to private keys. Output file format for revoked certificate list is CRL (according X.509).
The user can set other additional properties for export. These additional properties are set in a dialog window that is displayed by clicking Advanced . The dialog window content is changing according to objects that are exported by the user from the storage. For certificate export to one CER file and for revoked certificate list export is displayed this dialog window:
The user can set extended properties of the object export in this dialog window. The first settable property is output file encoding. There are two offered options. The first one is a binary encoded file and the second creates output file encoded by Base64. There can be used an additional complement of headers in output file in the second option. The last settable option is cancellation of exported objects from storage in case of successful export.
In case of a multiple certificate export to one output file P7C or a private key export, there is displayed a different dialog window with settable properties. The dialog window is shown below.
In this dialog window the user if offered two basic options. The first one is a possibility to add the output file of all subordinated certificates to the certificate of the user. If the subordinated certificates are saved in storage, then they are added to the output file. The second option is deletion of all successfully exported objects from storage. The user can also set that he wants to delete only the private key from the storage and all the exported certificates wants to leave in the storage. The relevant setup checkbox serves for this selection.
