Perform the steps in this procedure after you receive certificate files back from your certification authority. An unsigned (self-issued) certificate does not provide a guarantee of security to your users.

Your Vidyo server checks certificates for validity based on the certificates issued date range. Therefore, make sure that the time zone of your server is configured correctly prior to applying your certificate. If you instead plan on using self-signed certificates, you can click Generate Self-Signed to have the server sign its own certificate (self-signed). Clicking Generate Self-Signed and confirming removes your currently implemented server certificate.

  7. Click Yes.

    If the upload completes, a system notification is shown indicating the private key installed successfully.


Editing Your Server Certificate

Changes made to an SSL Private Key require a CSR and SSL Server Certificate. This includes uploading existing keys, editing existing keys, and regenerating new keys.

 

To edit a server certificate:

  1. Log in to the Admin interface using your System Console account.

    For more information, see Logging in to the Admin Interface.

  2. Navigate to MAINTENANCE > SECURITY.

  3. Click the Server Cert subtab.

    When you click on the Server Cert subtab the Server Certificate Chain will be validated against the Trusted CA Certificates (as configured in the Advanced subtab). A message will indicate whether this server certificate would be accepted, warned, or rejected by web browsers.

  6. Click Save.

    If the edit completes, a system notification displays indicating the change was successful.


Uploading the CA Chain Certificate

In addition to issuing SSL Certificates, a Trusted Root CA certificate can also be used to create another certificate, which in turn can be used to issue SSL Certificates. The majority of SSL certificates in use around the world are chained certificates of this type.

As the Intermediate Certificate is issued by the Trusted Root CA, any SSL Certificates issued by the Intermediate Certificate inherits the trust of the Trusted Root, effectively creating a certification chain of trust. In many cases the chaining is not limited to a single intermediate. More than one intermediate certificate may be part of a Certificates Bundle.

To upload the CA chain certificate:

  1. Log in to the Admin interface using your System Console account.

    For more information, see Logging in to the Admin Interface.

  2. Navigate to MAINTENANCE > SECURITY.

  3. Click the Server Cert subtab.

  6. Click Upload.

    A Confirmation pop-up displays.

  7. Click Yes.
