Installation of an EV SSL Certificate on an IBM® HTTP Server

Installation of an EV SSL Certificate for IBM® HTTP Server

 

Using IKEYMAN for Certificate Installation

In addition to the certificate for your server, Network Solutions® provides three intermediate CA certificates (NetworkSolutionsEVSSLCA.crt , NetworkSolutionsUTNServerCA.crt and UTNAddTrustServer_CA.crt) and also provides the Root CA Certificate (AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt).

 

Install all of the other certificates before installing the server certificate (which will be named 'mysite.com'.crt - where 'mysite.com' is your domain). Follow the instructions in 'Storing a CA certificate'.  

 

Note: If the authority who issues the certificate is not a trusted CA in the key database, you must first store the CA certificate and designate the CA as a trusted CA. Then you can receive your CA-signed certificate into the database. You cannot receive a CA-signed certificate from a CA who is not a trusted CA. For instructions see 'Storing a CA certificate'.

 

Storing a CA Certificate:

 

  • Enter IKEYMAN on a command line on UNIX®, or start the Key Management utility in the IBM HTTP Server folder on Windows.
  • Select Key Database File from the main User Interface, select Open.
  • In the Open dialog box, select your key database name. Click OK.
  • In the Password Prompt dialog box, enter your password and click OK.
  • Select Signer Certificates in the Key Database content frame, click the Add button.
  • In the Add CA Certificate from a File dialog box, select the root certificate to add or use the Browse option to locate the certificate. Click OK.
  • In the Label dialog box, enter a label name and click OK.

 

You must repeat these steps for the NetworkSolutionsEVSSLCA.crt file, the NetworkSolutionsUTNServerCA.crt file, and the UTNAddTrustServer_CA.crt file.

 

To receive the CA-signed certificate into a key database:

 

  • Enter IKEYMAN on a command line on UNIX, or start the Key Management utility in the IBM HTTP Server folder on Windows.
  • Select Key Database File from the main User Interface, select Open.
  • In the Open dialog box, select your key database name. Click OK.
  • In the Password Prompt dialog box, enter your password, click OK.
  • Select Personal Certificates in the Key Database content frame and then click the Receive button.
  • In the Receive Certificate from a File dialog box, select the certificate file. Click OK.
