I have just started learing to create certificates. I have created some & located in store using MMC. But, when I tried this command , I was unable to locate certificate.
makecert -n "CN=My Awesome Certificate Authority" -a sha1 -sv "MyCAuth PrivateKey.pvk" -r "My Awesome Certificate Authority.cer"
But , when I specify the store name , I was able to locate the cetificate. Can someone explain. What is wrong with above command or what is the default value for -ss switch.
makecert -n "CN=Test2" -a sha1 -sv "MyCAuth PrivateKey.pvk" -r "My Awesome Certificate Authority.cer" -ss root
