Imported Certificates in NSM Overview

 

If you imported a security device that already has a local certificate, CA, and CRL, these objects are automatically imported when you add that device to the NSM system. Imported objects use the default name of <CN>_<timestamp>.

However, to reuse the CA and CRL objects in other security devices, you must load the CA and CRL file directly into the management system:

  • To load a CA file (.cer) into the management system, open the imported CA object in Object Manager and use the Load Certificate option. After loading the CA, verify the status of the certificate appears as Loaded.

  • To load a CRL file (.crl) into the management system, open the imported CRL object in Object Manager and use the Load CRL option. After loading the CRL, verify the status of the CRL appears as Loaded.

After the CA certificate and CRL files have been loaded, you can use those CA and CRL objects in other devices.
