You can import a new SSL certificate. Keep the following in mind when planning to import a certificate.
- You cannot import an expired certificate.
- Only PKCS#12 certificates are supported. You cannot use another PKCS version. To use a certificate in another format, you must convert it to a PKCS#12 file format first.
- When you import a certificate, the Edit button is removed from the Current Certificate Details panel because the imported certificate cannot be edited.
- Carbon Black App Control supports use of multi-level certificates. The actual certificate must be specified last in the PKCS#12 container file.
- Only a certificate matching the App Control Server hostname or IP address may be imported.
