Install SSL Web Server Certificate onto Cisco CSS 11500
To install your SSL Web Server Certificate on Cisco CSS 11500, follow the instructions below:
This document provides instructions for installing Thawte SSL Web Server Certificates. If you are unable to use these instructions for your server, Thawte recommends that you contact either the vendor of your software or an organization that supports Cisco CSS 11500.
Step 1: Obtain the Thawte SSL Web Server Intermediate CA certificate
a) Download the SSL Web Server Intermediate CA certificate from the following solution: AR1384
Note: Be sure to use Vi or Notepad as word processing programs like Microsoft Wordpad may add additional characters that may render the certificate unusable.
b) Copy and paste the intermediate certificate into a separate text file and save as intermediate.crt.
Step 2: Obtain the SSL Web Server Certificate
Step 3: Creating the concatenated text file with .pem format
Cisco CSS 11500 requires the certificate and the Signing Certificate (Intermediate Certificate) to be concatenated in a text file with a .pem extension. Download your Certificate and Intermediate Certificate and copy the Certificates to a Notepad file or other text editor. Copy and paste the Intermediate Certificate below your issued Certificate in the following order: Your SSL Certificate > Intermediate Certificate. Save the file with a .pem extension (i.e mycertfile.pem)
Example of what the concatenated text file should look like:
Your SSL Certificate
Thawte Intermediate CA
