Issue/Introduction

You must use a Trusted Signed Certificate or regenerate the Self-Signed Certificates for DCS 6.7 and newer or Symantec Embedded Security: Critical System Protection (SES:CSP) 6.5, 7.0 or Critical System Protection (CSP) 7.2.

Environment

DCS 6.5.x, 6.7.x

SES:CSP 6.5, 7.0, 7.1

CSP 7.2

Resolution

The DCS Certificate Utility is used for:

  • Creation of the Certificate Signing Requests needed for the umcserver.ssl, sss.ssl, server-cert.ssl and agent-cert.ssl keystores needed to issue Trusted Signed Certificates.
  • Importing of the Trusted Signed Certificates to the DCS Keystores.
  • Recreation of the self-signed certificates

Attached is the Utility and the Readme file.

Note: If DCS was installed using the IP Address, you must update the <DCS Installation Directory>\umc\umc.properties UMC_Server_IP field with the FQDN that was used with the DCS Certificate Utility.

Example of some umc.properties parameters:

UMC_SERVER_IP = dcs-esx6.samad2k8.com
UMC_SERVER_PORT = 8443
UMC_SERVER_SCHEME = https
UMC_SERVER_SERVICE = umcservices
UMC_SERVER_SERVICE_TOKEN_VALIDATION_API = /rest/v1.0/auth/token/validate
