  2. Click Generate/Import.
  3. Specify the following and then click Create:
    • The default key Name defined in the CryptoToken of SignServer will be "testkey0" but any key name can be used.
    • Select RSA for the KeyType
    • Select 2048 for the RSA Key Size.

  4. The key is created and displayed in the list.
