How do I purchase a Security Certificate?

A number of companies offer Security Certificates; just search and choose the one you want.

As part of the purchase, you'll need to generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) file to send to the Certificate Authority. A CSR is a block of encrypted text that contains information needed for the certificate.

If you do purchase a third-party certificate, keep in mind that a certificate can be used with any operating system but that groov requires the certificate to be a PEM file. If you are asked to select an operating system, you can safely select "other" if that is an option, but it's OK to choose any type of operating system since the certificate is not OS dependent. The important thing is to select PEM as the format, and then cut and paste the certificate into the place provided in groov. See the groov Box User's Guide or groov Server User's Guide for instructions.
