The password you need to provide for CSR generation is needed to protect your key. You’ll need it later to authorize us to use your public/private key pair. Do not forget this password. If you do, the private key cannot be recovered: there is no “back door” to this security. Make sure that the password is at least 8 characters long, includes letters upper/lower case and numbers, and is not a name or a word. If you lose the password, you will have to purchase a new certificate.
