Importing and exporting your Email or Personal Authentication certificate using Comodo IceDragon



This document explains how you can use Comodo IceDragon to import or export an existing CPAC/Email certificate.

Exporting your Certificate from Comodo IceDragon:

  1. Click the hamburger/'Open Menu' button at the top-right corner then select 'Options'

  2. Select 'Advanced' from the menu on the left

  3. On the 'Certificates' tab, click the 'View Certificates' button

  4. On the 'Your Certificates' tab (of the 'Certificate Manager' dialog box), select the certificate you wish to back up and click 'Backup'

  5. Your certificate will be exported to a PKCS12 file. Please create a name for this file and choose where you want to save it.

  6. Next, create a password to protect the PKCS12. This password will be requested should you later import the certificate into another browser/mail client or device.

  7. Click 'OK' to finalize and that's it! You have successfully exported your Comodo Personal Authentication certificate.
