Install Thawte SSL Web certificate onto ClearPass 6.2 VM

  • 1.  Install Thawte SSL Web certificate onto ClearPass 6.2 VM

    Posted Aug 24, 2013 10:19 AM

    Upon installing our valid Thawte SSL for securelogin.mycompanay.net I came across twice an error. 

     

    1. Certificate CA "CN=Thawte SSL CA, O="Thawte, Inc.", C=US" must be added and enabled in Certificate Trust List

    This error was solved very quick by activating it in the Certificate Trust List.

     

    2.Certificate CA "EMAILADDRESS=premium-server@thawte.com, CN=Thawte Premium Server CA, OU=Certification Services Division, O=Thawte Consulting cc, L=Cape Town, ST=Western Cape, C=ZA" must be added and enabled in Certificate Trust List

    This error caused my a bit of a headache. There is a Thawte Premium Certificate installed though but any time I attempted to import the SSL certificate ClearPass prompted above error. It turned out that the pre-installed Thawte Premium Root Certificate is faulty.

     

    At the end I removed all pre installed Thawte Root Certificates and reinstalled them by downloading them from Thawte.com

     

    Perhaps the post is of help for those who may encounters the same problem.

    Thawte tends to have very confusing certificate chains. Two of the
    intermediate certs have very similar names.

    I am aware of the Thawte issues. Beeing a Thawte partner for a few years ....

     

    Here it was not a naming issue. Somehow a slash found its way into the pre installed certificate.
