For greater security, you can implement digital certificates to protect corporate assets. To do this, use the Credentials profile to define a certificate authority.

To configure the Credentials profile:

Prerequisites

Use this profile if you want to push certificates to your devices with or without a wi-fi network.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Resources > Profiles & Baselines > Profiles > Add > Add Profile > Chrome OS.
  2. Select Device to deploy settings to the device profile. Select User to deploy settings to the user profile.
  3. Configure the General profile settings as appropriate. These General profile settings determine how the profile deploys and who receives it.
  4. Select the Credentials payload and select Configure.
  5. Use the available fields to configure your desired settings.

Results

A few things will happen:

  • Uploaded certs will be sent to Google and distributed to devices.

  • Template certificates go down to the Workspace ONE UEM Chrome OS extension. You can provision the certificate without needing to configure a wi-fi network.

  • The certificate added to Credentials payload are also available in the Network profile for attaching to a wi-fi network if needed.

What to do next

If you are pushing certificates that need a wi-fi connection, you can then configure the Network profile. For more information, see Configure Network Profile (Chrome OS).
