Import wildcard certificate for FOS 7.3.x SAN switch

Is it possible to import a wildcard certificate to a SAN switch  to enable HTTPS for webtools ??

 

I performed the following steps:

1. "seccertutil genkey -keysize 2048"

2. Copied the key which was provided by CA to /etc/fabos/certs/sw0/pvt_key

3. seccertutil import -config swcert -enable https

  entered wildcart certificate name in interactive mode

--> "Invalid switch certificate.Exiting"

 

Current FOS Version = 7.3.1

Hi,

 

What is the format of your certificate and that it is the extension of the file?  I have issues with format / extension at customers.

Certificate extension:
Was provided as .crt file by CA.
I renamed the file to .pem before trying to import to SAN switch.

Certificate format:
key size = 2048
key algorithm = RSA
Wildcard certificate was issued by COMODO

Re: Import wildcard certificate for FOS 7.3.x SAN switch

Hi Andreas,

 

found some internal case where SSL certificate with wildcard is not supported with FOS 7.2. I will continue checking for FOS 7.3.

I assume that wildcard is in the alternate name (SAN) ?
