SSL Certificates Registry Key OVERVIEW A TLS secured communications channel requires both the RSA key pair and a SSL Certificate. The CERTMGR command may be used to install an externally generated and signed SSL Certificate that must be associated with the separately installed RSA key pair. Typically the internally generated key pair and certificate are sufficient. A secure connection to the JNIOR may be flagged by browsers as 'NOT SECURE' or 'UNSAFE'. This is only because the the JNIOR's self-signed Certificate has not been obtained from any of the approved Certificate Authorities. The Certificate may be labeled as 'INVALID'. You may rest assured that the connection is still fully encrypted and 'PRIVATE'. In the absence of a loaded SSL Certificate, JANOS will generate a self-signed certificate using the current RSA key pair. Registry keys are provided which allow you to customize the information provided in this certificate. Since self-signed certificates are not generally recognized as trusted by browsers, users will be confronted by a standard warning. The information in the certificate may be configured so your users may recognize the device and decide on their own to accept the connection. The default values provide for a fully functional connection. The CERTMGR command may also be used to export the internally generated Certificate. The resulting file may be imported into your computer's Trusted Certificate Store. With this step the browser, recognizing a now trusted certificate, will show a secured connection using a symbol such a lock.
