Generate security certificate for RSE6500

Issue Description

The current message received it as per below: The site is not secure


Solution

In order to resovle the error received in the browser we should generate and import a security certificate in RSE6500.

Generate a security certificate for RSE6500 in order to be seen as trustuble site when you want to access it from external/internal networks.

1. First of all you need to purchase a certificate from an authorize organization such as Godaddy.

2. Login into RSE6500 via SSH. (SecureCRT)

RSE6500>shell

sh-3.2# cd /home/rseuser/eUPP/tools/jks2pfx/

sh-3.2# openssl req –new –newkey rsa:2048 –nodes –keyout test.key –out test.csr

Execute the commands aboveyou can find the example belowbut please replace the "test" into the actual domain name you wish to use, such aslive.conference.com etc.



NOTE!!! In additioncommon name above should be domain name such as live.conference.com


When you apply for the certification file named xxxx.csr, it will also generate a server private key named xxxx.key, please save it safely. because when you generate the certificate, it will be used.


3. Access the Godaddy website for starting the certificate generation.

Open the certification file you applied for in RSE6500's CLI, which named xxxx.csr via notepad, you will see teh content as per below:



4. Submit the above data into Godaddy website, in the step where you are prompted to input the body contained by your .csr file then you will be prompted that they need to verify the certificate in order to provide you by e-mail.

If everything goes fine, the website will send the certificationxxxx.crt file, that will be part of server certificate


5. After GoDaddy website will send the certification file to you, via e-mail (xxxx.crt file), that will be part of server certificate.

The next step would be to import the certificate but after the below step is performed.

Open the xxxx.crt file and xxxx.key file, and copy them in turn, then save it as a xxxx.pem format file (because nginx server can only support .pem format certification)

 

Such as:



Go into the web interface of your RSE -> System -> Configuration -> Import

 

Import the xxxx.pem format, then fill in the server private key and Click OK.

 

NOTE!!! The private key would be the one you choose in the generation process:
