General Discussion / Code Signing Certification (SSL) FAQs
« Last post by certforumz on December 04, 2018, 06:03:27 AM »
Came across several doubts while I was getting Code Signing SSL for our software product. A few commonly asked questions and answers are given below:

What is CSR (Certificate Signing Request)?

A CSR or Certificate Signing request is a block of encoded text that is given to a Certificate Authority when applying for an SSL Certificate. It is usually generated on the server where the certificate will be installed and contains information that will be included in the certificate such as the organization name, common name (domain name), locality, and country. It also contains the public key that will be included in the certificate. A private key is usually created at the same time that you create the CSR, making a key pair. A CSR is generally encoded using ASN.1 according to the PKCS #10 specification.
A certificate authority will use a CSR to create your SSL certificate, but it does not need your private key. You need to keep your private key secret. The certificate created with a particular CSR will only work with the private key that was generated with it. So if you lose the private key, the certificate will no longer work.
What is contained in a CSR?
Name
Explanation
Examples
Common Name
The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of your server. This must match exactly what you type in your web browser or you will receive a name mismatch error.
*.google.com
mail.google.com
Organization
The legal name of your organization. This should not be abbreviated and should include suffixes such as Inc, Corp, or LLC.
Google Inc.
Organizational Unit
The division of your organization handling the certificate.
Information Technology
IT Department
City/Locality
The city where your organization is located.
Mountain View
State/County/Region
The state/region where your organization is located. This shouldn't be abbreviated: California
Country: The two-letter ISO code for the country where your organization is location: US
GB
Email address (An email address used to contact your organization): webmaster@google.com
Public Key:The public key that will go into the certificate.

The public key is created automatically

What does a CSR look like?
Most CSRs are created in the Base-64 encoded PEM format. This format includes the "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE REQUEST-----" and "-----END CERTIFICATE REQUEST-----" lines at the begining and end of the CSR. A PEM format CSR can be opened in a text editor and looks like the following example:
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE REQUEST-----

-----END CERTIFICATE REQUEST-----

IMPORTANT: For Code signing certificate, the Common Name would be your organizations name. Example,
CN = Anand Software and Training Pvt. Ltd.
O = Anand Software and Training Pvt. Ltd.
Both CN and O are exactly same as may seen in the above example.

Check out this article for detailed information on how tax exemption on interest paid Section 24 is applied. It is to be noted that the interest is accrued till the possession of the house or completion of construction. The accrued interest portion is to be claimed in 5 equal instalments after completion of the house construction. Read this article:
https://www.charteredclub.com/tax-benefit-on-home-loan/

If the construction is delayed more than 5 years, then only 30,000 per year is allowed towards tax exemption. 0 to 5 years, 2 lakhs is allowed under tax exemption under section 24.

Principal amount paid comes under sec 80C and clubbed with others like PPF etc.
