Enterprise Certificate Management

By default, Solstice Pods are configured with a self-signed certificate from Mersive. However, for enterprises where this is insufficient, Solstice provides enterprise certificate management tools that give Solstice admins a centralized place for managing certificates in the Solstice Dashboard (Security tab > Certificate Tools). These tools allow Solstice admins to manage client-server communication certificates and 802.1x certificates within Solstice. With the certificate tools, you can do the following:

  • Generate a certificate signing request (CSR). This option generates a secret key that stays on the Pod as well as a .csr file that can be signed by your certificate authority. After signing, the certificate can be uploaded to the Pod. Example workflowClosed

  • Generate a certificate signing request to create and add a unique 802.1x User Certificates to the Pod for 802.1x authenticated networks. Example workflowClosed

Limitations

Be aware of the following limitations to the Certificate Tools:

  • If you are using Install certificate and private key, password-protected PEM files and private keys are not supported.
