Acquiring a Partners CA Certificate

Once you create the Policy.inf file, you must obtain the partner's CA certificate. This certificate represents the CA to which you are going to issue the Cross Certification Authority certificate.

The certificate is used to generate the Cross Certification Authority certificate's subject name. By using the CA's certificate to obtain the CA's name, the process is protected against a user making typographic errors during subject input. Using the CA's certificate also ensures that the Cross Certification Authority certificate preserves the subject name from the provided certificate.
