How to Install Certificates on SSL Offloader

This article will go into detail on how to install certificates on SSL Offloader.

EXAMPLE - Setting Up the Chained Certificates

Now that you have the proper certificates, you start by loading the certificates into certificate objects. These separate certificate objects are then loaded into a certificate group. This example demonstrates how to load two certificates into individual certificate objects, create a certificate group, and enable the use of the group as a certificate chain. The name of the Transaction Security device is myDevice. The name of the secure logical server is server1. The name of the PEM-encoded, CA generated certificate is server.pem; the name of the PEM-encoded certificate is inter.pem. The names of the recognized and local certificate objects are trustedCert and myCert, respectively. The name of the certificate group is CACertGroup.

Start the configuration manager as described in the manual.

Attach the configuration manager and enter Configuration mode. (If an attach or configurationlevel password is assigned to the device, you are prompted to enter any passwords.)
inxcfg> attach myDevice
inxcfg> configure myDevice

Enter SSL Configuration mode and create an intermediary certificate named CACert, entering into Certificate Configuration mode. Load the PEM-encoded file into the certificate object, and return to SSL Configuration mode. (config[myDevice])> ssl
(config-ssl[myDevice])> cert myCert create
(config-ssl-cert[CACert])> pem inter.pem
(config-ssl-cert[CACert])> end

Enter Key Association Configuration mode, load the PEM-encoded CA certificate and private key files, and return to SSL Configuration mode.
(config-ssl[myDevice])> keyassoc localKeyAssoc create
(config-ssl-keyassoc[localKeyAssoc])> pem server.pem key.pem
(config-ssl-keyassoc[localKeyAssoc])> end

Enter Certificate Group Configuration mode, create the certificate group CACertGroup, load the certificate object CACert, and return to SSL Configuration mode.
(config-ssl[myDevice])> certgroup CACertGroup create
(config-ssl-certgroup[CACertGroup])> cert myCert
(config-ssl-certgroup[CACertGroup])> end

Enter Server Configuration mode, create the logical secure server server1,assign an IP address, SSL and clear text ports, a security policy myPol, the certificate group CACertGroup, key association localKeyAssoc, and exit to Top Level mode. (config-ssl[myDevice])> server server1 create
(config-ssl-server[server1])> ip address netmask
(config-ssl-server[server1])> sslport 443
(config-ssl-server[server1])> remoteport 81
(config-ssl-server[server1])> secpolicy myPol
(config-ssl-server[server1])> certgroup chain CACertGroup
(config-ssl-server[server1])> keyassoc localKeyAssoc
(config-ssl-server[server1])> end
(config-ssl[myDevice])> end
(config[myDevice])> end

Save the configuration to flash memory. If it is not saved, the configuration is lost during a power cycle or if the reload command is used.
inxcfg> write flash myDevice
