Linux RHEL TLS Procedure



We are a long way on your Pilot with Smartdevices, Windows and Ubuntu. We are having struggles with other Linux OS's such RHEL6 for example.


Has anyone written a procedure on how to configure RHEL for EAP-TLS? 


We have downloaded the certtifiacte from the limited onboard option but we are facing challenges on cert formats, Unencrypted private encryption warnings etc.

My post on how to generate an EAP-TLS Certificate for Linux via the internal Onboard CA is here:


An article on how to import that into Redhat is here:

Re: Linux RHEL TLS Procedure

Hi Joseph,


The 2nd article on the RHEL instance was great and wish I found it sooner as I experienced as those gremlins. There is was last issue. Wjhen connecting, we get "Unencrypted private keys are insecure". This is in relation to the private key I downloaded from CPPM 6.5 for the private key. I know if I covert it to a PEM file, I have to provide my AD password that I used during its generation. 


See image attached.


Any thoughts?
