    Default SSL Helper

    Rizon has undergone many new changes in the last couple of months, one of those being a function refereed to as certp. Certp is basically the ability to identify your nickname with Services via an SSL fingerprint.

    In order to utilize this function the user must be able to generate an SSL certificate and setup there client to connect to Rizon using SSL.

    For some users creating a certificate may be difficult, so this is where SSL Helper comes into play.

    SSL Helper is a command line tool written in C++ which uses pre-compiled windows SSL libraries to generate a 2048 bit encryption certificate that is good for a year. Essentially it's just a script which allows the end user to quickly generate a certificate without complicated commands.



    Unzip the downloaded file to your desktop, it will extract a SSL helper folder.
    After the folder is extracted there are two exe's within the main directory, one exe is the actual certificate helper, and the other is a library importer.

    The library importer will put all the required SSL dll's into your system32 directory so you aren't missing any files. This file must be ran as administrator in order to copy the files into the system32 directory on vista and windows 7. If you are unsure whether or not you have the files, go ahead and run this exe anyway.

    Move on to the next file which is SSL Helper.exe

    You will be prompted to fill out a few blanks for the certificate:
    Your Country name, full name, city, Organization, Common name, and email.

    After filling out the info a certificate named "rizon.pem" will be placed into SSL Helper\bin. This file needs to be moved into your client directory, for this purpose we will be using mIRC. Once the file is in the mIRC directory you will need to load it. Too load the file simply press alt+e in mIRC and on the left click the Options dialog under Connect. Under this menu you should see an SSL button, click it and you will need to point Private Key File and Certificate Chan file to the rizon.pem in the mIRC main folder, don't worry about Trusted authorities or any other options. Once the certificate is loaded connect to Rizon by typing /server +6697

    After connecting to Rizon you'll need to add your SSL finger print to services. Identify for your nick then type:

    /ns access add fingerprint
    After issuing that command you will automatically identify from now on based on your SSL certificate.
    If the SSL button is NOT there you need to restart mIRC for it to load the libraries.

    SSL Install
