Import Your Own SSL Certificate

If you are using your own certificate authority (CA) or you have purchased a certificate to sign the SSL connection you need to import this certificate on the Software Vulnerability Manager RHEL server.

To import your own SSL certificate:

1. Copy your PFX file to Software Vulnerability Manager.
2. Extract the private key:

openssl pkcs12 -in csi.pfx -nocerts -out csi.key

3. Remove the password from your key, so httpd will start without prompting for it:

mv csi.key

openssl rsa -in -out csi.key

4. Generate the public certificate:

openssl pkcs12 -in csi.pfx -clcerts -nokeys -out csi.crt

5. Copy the files to the proper locations:

cp csi.key  /etc/pki/tls/private/

cp csi.crt /etc/pki/tls/certs/
