About the Device Certificates Page
You are here: Device Administration > Certificate Management > Device Certificates.
Manage the device certificates to authenticate Secure Socket Layer (SSL). SSL uses public-private key technology that requires a paired private key and an authentication certificate for providing the SSL service. SSL encrypts communication between your device and the Web browser with a session key negotiated by the SSL server certificate.
You can perform the following tasks:
Import a certificate to manually load externally generated certificates or CSR. See Import a Device Certificate.
You must obtain the private key, passphrase, and the signed certificate from certificate authority (CA) server.
Export a local certificate or CSR from the default location to a specific location within the device. See Export a Device Certificate.
