    Security Tab

    Use the settings on the Security tab to manage client certificates for authentication in the configuration web interface (CWI). This is only required if you have configured your system to use certificate based authentication.

    There are three options:

    • You can download individual CA (certificate authority), and server certificates.

                   • You can download a PKCS12 certificate (.p12), and then re-generate certificates based on the current server certificate you are using (refer to Host Interface Configuration for details on generating host certificates).

                   • If you are unsure if the host certificate has been updated, click the Renew button before downloading any certificates to your browser. In order to work properly, the client certificates must match the server certificate. When you click Renew, you will be prompted for a password.

     To Install a Certificate on your Browser to Enable Certificate Authentication:

    1 - After clicking the link in the Login column on the Users page, click the Security tab.

                   2 - Download the certificate(s) by clicking the Download button.

                   3 - Open your browser to upload the certificate. If using MS Internet Explorer, click Tools>Internet Options, click the Content tab and click the Certificates button. Then click the Import button. When the Certificate Import Wizard opens, click Next, browse to the Personal Information Exchange file you just downloaded (select Personal Information Exchange in the Files of type field), click Next, then enter the password you chose when renewing the certificate. This will import the certificate into your personal list.

                   4 - When you open your browser to the URL of the configuration web interface using a secure listener (example: https://localhost:7771/portal/index), the Choose a digital certificate dialog box opens. Select your certificate and click OK.
