Signed Certs for HTTPS and OpenVPN

  • Hi,

    I would like to use a cert from DigiCert for https access to pfsense, as well as OpenVPN clients. I created a server.csr and server.key on another linux box. I uploaded the csr to DigiCert. I have all the files from DigiCert that I need. I am unsure of how to install these files on pfsense 2.0. I see a server1.key in /var/etc/openvpn/  If I copy over the existing server1.key with my server.key associated with and install my new DigiCertCA and crt files will my DigiCertCA be available when creating public keys for users?

    Should I have generated a csr file on pfsense itself?

    Are there instructions for implementing signed certs with pfsense? Cruising  the forums I didn't see of anything that could help me.

    Do not touch anything in /var/etc

    Go to System > Cert Manager and import the certificates there. You'll need to import the CA cert and the server cert/key.

    On each one, click + and then choose import, and paste the cert into the box(es) provided.
