How to create a VIP Certificate using your own private key.
A VIP certificate is required to secure communication and identify yourself to the VIP service. In communications with the VIP service, the certificate is used as a TLS/SSL client certificate.
VIP manager can automatically create a private key for you when you request a VIP certificate or you may create your own private key and submit a certificate signing request (CSR) for a VIP certificate.
