I'm an absolute newbie in the enterprise CSR and certificate generation process. So kindly point out any obvious silliness in the question.
Is it possible to completely automate the process of CSR generation + certificate signing by a CA and installation of signed certificate with? From my basic understanding, I believe the CSR submission and certificate signing by the CA has a turnaround time to the tune of days and would also require some manual intervention. Has anyone managed to automate that step? Do CAs expose signing as a web service?
