distinguished_name = req_distinguished_name
encrypt_key = no
prompt = no
string_mask = nombstr
req_extensions = v3_req
[ v3_req ]
basicConstraints = CA:false
keyUsage = nonRepudiation, digitalSignature, keyEncipherment
subjectAltName = DNS:unity1.myitblog.local

stateOrProvinceName = State
localityName = London
0.organizationName = myitblog.co.uk
organizationalUnitName = IT
commonName = unity1.myitblog.local
