Certificate to ActiveX Trusted Certificate Store
You must use
the OpenSSL command line tool to create the certificate Hash using
Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA). It is recommended to use OpenSSL tool
1.0.x and later since it uses SHA by default. The CA certificate must
be in Base64 encoded PEM format. This is one-time process to import
each CA certificate.
To import the CA certificate to the ActiveX
trusted certificate store:
Open the OpenSSL command prompt.
Run a 8 byte hash on the CA certificate that is currently
in-use on the management station using the command:
x509 -in (name of CA cert) -noout -hash
An output file is generated. For example, if the CA certificate
file name is
cacert.pem, the command is:
openssl x509 –in cacert.pem –noout –hash
The output similar to “431db322” is generated.
Rename the CA file to the output file name and include
a “.0" extension. For example, 431db322.0.
Copy the renamed CA certificate to your home directory.
C:\Documents and Settings\<user> directory.
