It is the responsibility of the Appliance Administrator to add or remove trusted root certificates to the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords Appliance, if necessary, in order for the SSL certificate to resolve the chain of authority. When Safeguard for Privileged Passwords connects to an asset that has the Verify SSL Certificate option enabled, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords compares the signing authority of the certificate presented by the asset to the certificates in the trusted certificate store.
Navigate to Administrative Tools | Settings | Certificates | Trusted Certificates. The Trusted Certificates pane displays the following information for the user-supplied certificates added to the trusted certificate store.
|Subject||The name of the subject (such as user, program, computer, service or other entity) assigned to the certificate when it was requested.|
|Invalid Before||A "start" date and time that must be met before a certificate can be used.|
|Expiration Date||The date and time when the certificate expires and can no longer be used.|
|Thumbprint||A unique hash value that identifies the certificate.|
|Issued By||The name of the certificate authority (CA) that issued the certificate.|
Prior to adding an asset that uses SSL server certificate validation, add the certificate's root CA and any intermediate CAs to the Trusted Certificates store in Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.
Click Add Certificate from the details toolbar.
Important: Safeguard for Privileged Passwords does not allow you to remove built-in certificate authorities.
