Re: cosign certificate.


You can use your CoSign OpenSSL certificates for running https on your
server.  Instructions for doing this are included in the readme.txt file
under +--== Using your OpenSSL certificates for https +--==.  I assume
this is what you're trying to do?  The IISCoSign installer does not
generate any passwords since the format the private key and CSR files are
in do not require one.
