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

    Thanks !


  • 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
    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, and

    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/"

    1. Send the 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 (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.
