The Certificates portlet allows you to manage certificates on the Viewpoint server. Certificates are used to help secure communications to and from a Viewpoint server. You can install a certificate to secure communication from a browser to the Viewpoint server and from the Viewpoint server to external servers.
- Install one or more trusted root certificates that are issued by a trusted certificate authority (CA).
- Create a certificate signing request (CSR) and install it after it is signed by a CA.
- Create and install a self-signed certificate (SSC).
- Install a PKCS #12 file if you want to install a certificate without having to first create a CSR.
The installed certificate applies to only this Viewpoint server.
