    Hi Community,

    Just want to have some opinions from others regarding the timeline of a Radius Certificate should be renewed and import to CPPM once CSR  is extracted (Create Certificate Signing Request) from it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Enrique,

    Not sure I understand your question but giving it a try..

    Your certificate is good until it expires or you deploy a new one. With respect to timing, once you generate the CSR, it's up to the certificate signing authority (unless you are doing a self-sign cert) to issue the certificate. This could be minutes to hours.

    Once you have the new cert, the install takes seconds basically.

    Hope this helps - Ricardo.

    If your asking how much time you have between generating the CSR on clearpass and installing it, its 15 days.

    A certificate signing request created in ClearPass is valid for only 15 days. After 15 days, the CSR expires and the certificates that were created by it cannot be installed. Also note that the stored private key is removed 15 days after the certificate signing request was created. If you don't import the certificate within 15 days, you must create the CSR and certificate again.

    Thank you for answering the question. My superiors doesn't believe me that Renewed Cert should be installed within 15 days of generating the CSR.
