Error Uploading Certificate: Error in cert format

Hello!

 

I have created a self signed Trusted CA certificate with open SSL and tried to upload it to my controller and keep getting "Error Uploading Certificate: Error in cert format". I have already tried converting it to .cer/.pem/.crt formats, but still get the same message.

 

What is wrong? (Are there some special criteria for the certificate?)

 

Cheers!

Did you use the procedure here?  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Controller-Based-WLANs/How-can-I-use-OpenSSL-to-create-CA-server-and-public/ta-p/179206

Re: Error Uploading Certificate: Error in cert format

Yes, I did look at this guide, but it gives me an error after the 3rd step, because the guy references stuff thats not even there (eg.:  first he says put the openssl.cfg to -config /opt/pki/openssl.cnf and then references it in -config /bnet/pki/openssl.cnf) so it would take me more time to get when and where he is referencing stuff then to make new certificates if I knew what the criteria is for a certificate. (eg.: .pem/.der; sha1/sha256 etc.)

I only found the max key length and that it has to be x509 format .pem (Thats what I uploaded and it said error).

 

Also, in this user guide, I dont see where he adds the SAN to the certificate, and chrome and opera only accepts web certificates, that contain the san for ssl.

 

Thx!

Re: Error Uploading Certificate: Error in cert format

To be clear, are you trying to use the certificate for EAP-TLS Termination or for Web-Based Authentication?

Re: Error Uploading Certificate: Error in cert format

Well, I need a ROOT CA certificate for EAP-TLS and I need a Server certificate (signed by the root CA) for web administration.
