How to import a Signed Certificate to Symantec Security Information Manager (SSIM).
This article gives instructions on how to import a Signed Certificate into SSIM. For instructions on how to request, issue certificates, please read documentation provided by the Vendor of the certificate server you use.
Note: The Certificate that is Issued from the Certificate Authority must be setup for both Server and Client authentication.
First, import the CA Root certificate
Second, create the Certificate Signing Request (CSR)
The CSR must be received by the Certificate Authority and a Signed Certificate is Issued. The signed certificate has the same filename as the CA Root certificate by default. It is best if you save it in a different but easy to find location.
Import the Signed Certificate
You must add the Signed Certificate information to both SSIM Clients and Event Agents that must communicate with the SSIM appliance(s) as well.
