Importing third party certificates

Top  Previous  Next

If you have your MFT Server server private key signed by a certificate authority (CA) such as Thawte or Verisign, you may import the issued certificate using the Import > Import Certificates button.




Some CA issue an intermediate certificate in addition to a signed certificate.  If your certificate came with an intermediate certificate you will need to append the contents of the intermediate to the signed certificate issued to you by your CA.  If your certificate did not come with an intermediate certificate you may skip these steps.


1.Open your signed certificate and intermediate certificate files using a text editor e.g. notepad or vi.
2.Copy the full contents of the intermediate certificate and append to the end of signed certificate file.
3.Save signed certificate and continue with process of importing signed certificate.
