Obtaining a Signed Certificate from the CA for an ES PIC

To obtain a signed certificate from the CA, issue the following command:

user@host> request security certificate enroll filename filename subject c=us,o=x alternative-subject certificate-ip-address certification-authority certificate-authority key-filekey-file-name domain-name domain-name

The results are saved in a specified file to the /var/etc/ikecert directory.

The following example shows how to obtain a CA signed certificate by referencing the configured certification-authority statement local . This statement is referenced by the request security certificate enroll filename m subject c=us,0=x alternative subject 1.1.1.1 certification-authority command.

[edit]security {certificates {certification-authority local {ca-name xyz.company.com;file l;enrollment-url "http://www.xyzcompany.com";}}}
