Example: Requesting a CA Digital Certificate

Specify a URL to the SCEP server and the name of the certification authority whose certificate you want: filename 1 is name of the file that stores the result. The output, "Received CA certificate:" provides the signature for the certificate, which allows you to verify (offline) that the certificate is genuine.
