SSL/TLS Manager : Private Keys

A private key is used to decrypt information transmitted over SSL. When you create an SSL certificate, the first step is to generate a private key file associated with that SSL certificate. You should generate a private key for each SSL certificate you create. This private key is very important and should be kept confidential. A copy of each private key should be kept in a safe place; there is no way to recover a lost private key.

Generate a New Private Key.

You should generate a new key file for each certificate you install. A key size of 0 bits is recommended.
