Configuring a Burp root CA certificate in iOS13

Finally got this working!!! Here are the full instructions: 1. Generate a certificate with the following commands (notice the extendedKeyUsage addition to Nick's answer above) openssl req -x509 -nodes -newkey rsa:4096 -keyout myBurpCA.key -out root-ca.crt -days 365 -subj "/C=CA/O=Burp/OU=Certification Services/CN=MyBURPRootCA/" -addext "extendedKeyUsage=1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.1" openssl pkcs12 -export -out BurpRootCA.pfx -inkey myBurpCA.key -in root-ca.crt 2. Go to burp and use the "Import / Export CA certificate" option and select your newly generated certificate (user the pfx file). **DO NOT** use "Edit Proxy Listener -> Certificate -> Use a custom certificate". It will not work (this is a custom specific certificate, you still want a CA-signed per-host certificate). 3. Go to the iPhone, configure the Burp Suite proxy as the proxy server and go to http://burp 4. Download and install the certificate by click the top right corner, downloading it ("Allow") and then going to settings -> Profile Downloaded -> Install, to finish the additional installation steps. 5. Authorize the installed certificate for TLS authentication by going to Settings > General > About > Certificate Trust Settings, and then toggle "Enable Full Trust for Root Certificates" on for the certificate. That's it! Certificate is now valid for TLS authentication.

Worked for me in Burp version v2020.1 (some people says it does not work in version v2020.5) and Java8: java version "1.8.0_221" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_221-b11) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.221-b11, mixed mode)

Hi there, for MacOsX Catalina, the option -addext "extendedKeyUsage=1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.1" didn't work, just removed it and voila!
