I have a PFX certificate file on my machine and I'd like to view the details before importing it. (The import utility doesn't actually tell you what the certificate is!).

How do I view the details about the PFX certificate file?

Some options to view PFX file details:

  • Open a command prompt and type: certutil -dump <path to cert>
  • Install OpenSSL and use the commands to view the details, such as: openssl pkcs12 -info -in <path to cert>
