System Management : Using certificates : Importing an Intermediate CA
Importing an Intermediate CA
The Intermediate CA store is for the Intermediate CA certificates that the backend servers would ordinarily use to complete the chain between the client certificate and the server certificate. HTTPS transactions use intermediate CAs when the server certificate is signed by an intermediate certificate authority (CA) rather than a root CA.
Before you begin:
You must have Read-Write permission for System settings.
You must know the URL of an SCEP server or have downloaded the certificate and key files and be able to browse to them so that you can upload them.
To import an intermediate CA:
1. Go to System > Certificate > Manage Certificates.
2. Click the Intermediate CA tab.
3. Click Import to display the configuration editor.
4. Complete the configuration as described in Table 92.
5. Click Import.
