Private key back up

All types of certificates offered by I.CA consist of several parts:

  • Private key (also data for the creation of an electronic signature),
  • Public key (also data for the authentication of an electronic signature), usually a part of the certificate,
  • The certificate itself.

In order for your certificate to be used correctly, you have to have a private key associated with the certificate, which is used to create the electronic signature. If you use a hardware solution such as smart card or USB token, the private key is located on such a medium and it is not necessary to do the backup.
If you only use a PC, we recommend creating a backup.

A backup (export) of a private key can be created only if the certificate was designated as exportable.

Instructions for the creation of a backup:

 OS Windows 7
 OS Windows 8
 OS Windows 10
OS Windows Server 2003/2008/2008 R2 - Technological (commercial server) certificate
