Issue new certificates in Keychain Access on Mac
As a CA, before you can issue a new certificate, anyone requesting a certificate must create a certificate-signing request (CSR) and send it to you via email. The CSR can be created using Certificate Assistant in Keychain Access. A CSR created by Certificate Assistant has the file extension .certSigningRequest.
In the Keychain Access app on your Mac, choose Keychain Access > Certificate Assistant > Open.
Select the CSR file you received.
To manually specify the information in the certificate, such as extensions and encryption, click “Let me override defaults”, then follow the instructions.
