To enable secure Web access, you must generate a digital SSL certificate and then enable HTTPS access on the switching platform.
To generate an SSL certificate:
% openssl req –x509 –nodes –newkey rsa:1024 –keyout filename.pem -out filename.pem
Replace filename with the name of a file in which you want the SSL certificate to be written—for example, new.pem.
Note: When you are ready to install the SSL certificate, open this file and copy its contents so you can paste it into the Certificate box on the Secure Access Configuration page.
You can use either J-Web Configuration or a configuration editor to install the SSL certificate and enable HTTPS.
