Uploading an X.509 PEM Certificate Text

Many Certificate Authorities simply issue a Certificate in the form of a plain text file. If your Certificate was provided in this manner, and the Certificate is in the X.509 PEM format, follow the procedure below to upload the Certificate text by copying and pasting it into the Web UI.

Note: Only X.509 PEM Certificates can be loaded in this manner. Certificates issued in other formats must be uploaded via the Upload Certificate tab.

Certificate Chain

It is also possible to upload a X.509 PEM Certificate Chain by pasting the text of the second certificate behind the regular CA Certificate.

Uploading X.509 PEM certificate text

To upload an X.509 PEM Certificate text to NetClock:

  1. Navigate to MANAGEMENT > NETWORK: HTTPS Setup.
  2. Select the Upload X.509 PEM Certificate tab.
  3. Copy the text of the Certificate that was issued to you by your Certificate Authority, and paste it into the text field.
  4. Click Submit to upload the Certificate to NetClock.

NOTE: The text inside the text field under the Edit X.509 PEM Certificate tab is editable. However, changes should not be made to a Certificate once it is imported; instead, a new Certificate should be requested. An invalid Certificate may result in denial of access to the NetClock through the Web UI. If this occurs, see If a Secure Unit Becomes Inaccessible.
