        Microsoft PVKConverter for SQL Server is a conversion tool for security certificates. It is used to generate PVK/DER encoded security certificates from existing PFX encoded security certificates. The generated certificates can be manually imported into SQL Server by using the CREATE CERTIFICATE … Transact-SQL statement to create security certificates in a SQL Server database.

        -i: Specifies the name of the input PFX file. This parameter is required.
        -o: Specifies the name of the generated output files. This parameter is optional. If not specified, the output file names are derived from the name of the input file.
        -d: Specifies the decryption password for the private keys contained in the PFX file. This parameter is optional.
        -e: Specifies the encryption password for the generated PVK files. This parameter is optional.

        Comments

        Input File Location
      • Providing a valid input file location is mandatory. PVKConverter will return an error message otherwise. Both fully qualified and relative paths are supported.


      • Passwords
      • Providing an input decryption password is optional. If the input PFX file requires a decryption password, and one has not been provided, PVKConverter will return an error message.
      • Providing an output encryption password is optional. If provided, all generated PVK files will be encrypted using the same password.
      • If an input decryption password is provided and an output encryption password is not provided, all generated PVK files will be encrypted using the input decryption password.


      • Output File Generation
      • The number of generated PVK/DER files depends on the number of public/private key pairs contained in the PFX file. One PVK/DER file pair will be generated for each public/private key pair.
      • Providing the name for the generated output file is optional. If provided, it must point to a valid location. PVKConverter will return an error message otherwise.
      • If an output file name is provided, PVKConverter will append .pvk and .cer to the names of the generated PVK/DER files. If not provided, PVKConverter will derive output files names based of the input PFX file name.
      • If the name of an output file generated by PVKConverter matches the name of an existing file, the existing file will be overwritten only if the -f option has been specified.


      • Examples

        PVKConverter -i mySecurityCert -o myGeneratedSecurityCert -d Pa$$word1! -e Pa$$word2!
      • If the input certificate mySecurityCert.pfx contains a single pair of public/private keys, PVKConverter will generate two files myGeneratedSecurityCert_1.pvk and myGeneratedSecurityCert_1.cer containing the private key and other information respectively. myGeneratedSecurityCert_1.pvk will be encrypted using the password Pa$$word2!.
      • If the input file mySecurityCert.pfx contains 2 pairs of public/private keys, PVKConverter will generate 4 files myGeneratedSecurityCert_1.pvk, myGeneratedSecurityCert_1.cer, myGeneratedSecurityCert_2.pvk and myGeneratedSecurityCert_2.cer. myGeneratedSecurityCert_1.pvk and myGeneratedSecurityCert_2.pvk will be encrypted using the password Pa$$word2!.
