Inspect CSR with OpenSSL, 17.10.2014 10:45

Before sending a CSR off to your CA, it is worth checking that all parameters are correct.
Especially you should make sure that the requested signature algorithm is SHA256 and not the deprecated SHA1.

This can be done with the following OpenSSL command:

openssl req -noout -text -in <your_CSR_file>
