If the SMA appliance uses a self-signed SSL certificate for HTTPS authentication, then it is recommended to install the certificate before establishing a NetExtender connection. If you are unsure whether the certificate is self-signed or generated by a trusted root Certificate Authority, SonicWall recommends that you import the certificate. The easiest way to import the certificate is to click Import Certificate on the System > Certificates page.
If the certificate is not issued by an authorized organization, a message is displayed warning users of the risk. You can then view detailed information and choose to continue or end the connection.
When using the network logon method from the Windows login screen, NetExtender uses System Store for certificate-based authentication. When you are already logged in to Windows, NetExtender uses the User Store for certificate-based authentication. Users who wants to use the network logon method when certificate authentication is also enabled should import their user certificate into the System Store as well as into the User Store.
