Public Cert on Private Router

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here ever used a certificate from a CA on their own private router?  I'm having a lot of trouble generating a CSR through SSH.  My router won't let me fill in the needed info...country, contact, etc.

This:

openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout XX.ddns.net.key -out XX.ddns.net.csr

and I get this back:

Generating a 2048 bit RSA private key

............................................+++
writing new private key to 'XX.ddns.net.key'

You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
For some fields there will be a default value,
If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.

. []:US
. []:.
. []:.
. []:.
. []:.

Please enter the following 'extra' attributes
to be sent with your certificate request
. []:
. []:

It automatically adds the "." instead of letting me put in the details.  When providing an empty CSR to a CA, they don't allow it because they can't bind it to an owner.

It's a long shot but has anyone else dealt with this?
