Secure Mobile Access 12.4 Administration Guide

Importing an Existing Certificate from Another Computer

If you already have a certificate from a commercial CA, you may want to transfer it and its private key to the appliance. After you import the certificate, it will be used by the servers to secure user traffic on the appliance.

A host is not selected for the certificate, because there is no one to one mapping of certificates to hosts. Wildcard certificates allow one certificate to map to multiple hosts.

The appliance stores certificates in the PKCS #12 format. If your certificate is stored in a different format, convert it to PKCS #12 before importing. After performing the conversion, confirm that the PKCS #12 file contains the complete certificate chain.

To transfer an existing certificate to the appliance

  1. In the AMC, navigate to System Configuration > SSL Settings.

  2. In the SSL Certificates section, click Edit.

  3. Click the + (New) icon, and then select Import certificate from the menu.

  4. On the Import Certificate page, click Browse, and then upload the certificate from your local file system (the computer from which you have logged in to AMC).

  5. In the Password field, type the password that was used to encrypt the private key.

  6. Click Save.

    The appliance uses the previous certificate until you apply your configuration changes.
