SSL certificate signed



  • Hi,

    It is possible to install a SSL certificate issued by a real (VeriSign, Thawte, Comodo etc) Certificate Authority for the Captive Portal ? How?

    I already tested and the user's browser does not recognize the certificate.

    BEGIN CERTIFICAT–----------
    Certificate + CA
    END CERTIFICATE-------------

    PRIVATE KEY-----------------
    KEY
    END PRIVATE KEY-------------

    Thanks !

    Cdt,
    Sig



  • We're primarily a Microsoft shop, so that is why we wanted to find a way to get the key ready in Windows.

    Copy/Paste from the documentation on our installation:

    1. Download and install the windows version of Open SSL from  http://www.slproweb.com/download/Win32OpenSSL_Light-0_9_8k.exe
    2. Open command prompt go to C:\OpenSSL\bin and execute the command below after updating the relevant information to meet the needs of your certificate which will create two files, host.domain.com.key and host.domain.com.csr.

    openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -out host_domain_com.csr -keyout host_domain_com.key -subj "/C=US/ST=State Name/L=City Name/O=Company Name/OU=Department Name/CN=host.domain.com"

    1. Send the host.domain.com.csr file from step 2 to your certification authority who will send you the certificate file.
    2. Copy and paste the certificate information sent by your certificate authority and the host.domain.com.key (private key) file information from step 2 into your captive portal ssl configuration page.

    Also, this should probably be in the captive portal section, not the WebGUI.
