How to generate 2048 Bit Certificate with Makecert.exe? – Avkash Chauhan’s Blog – Site Home – MSDN Blogs

on my windows 8.1 surface, open the visual studio (2012) developer command line tool, from the start screen, in administor mode. (It doesn’t work, if you don’t.)

C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\bin\x64>Makecert -r -pe -n CN=”” -b 05/10/2010 -e 12/22/2015 -eku -ss my -sr localmachine -sky exchange -a sha256 -sy 12 -len 2048

by default, the tool produces 1024 bit with sha1. i.e. eliminate –a XX and –len YY.
