Creating SSL Certificates for AMP in versions 7.1 and earlier

Aruba Employee

This document describes creating a self-signed SSL certificate to use with AirWave versions 7.1 and earlier.

The easiest solution is to create another self-signed certificate for the server. Here are the steps for creating a self-signed certificate for example.airwave.com

----------
# sed s/"localhost.localdomain"/"example.airwave.com"/ /root/svn/mercury/lib/conf/openssl.cnf > /tmp/openssl.cnf
# /usr/bin/openssl req -new -key /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key -x509 -days 1827 -out /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt -config /tmp/openssl.cnf 2> /dev/null
# service httpd restart > /dev/null
-----------

A better solution is to get a certificate from a real Certificate Authority. That would get rid of those annoying "this certificate was issued by a company you have not chosen to trust" errors, and it would make the server a little bit more secure. The process for doing that is described in an article called "How to install your own cert on AMP", which is here: http://kb.airwave.com/?sid=50140000000MerO
