Hub 2.5 Help

SSL Key Stores

Hub supports uploading SSL key stores and trusted certificates. A client key is used to identify Hub as a client when connecting to a third-party server, whereas adding a server certificate as trusted means that you do trust the server that possesses a respective key.

The uploaded SSL client keys and trusted certificates can be used to configure secure connection with various supported Authentication Module providers.

Prerequisites

  • You must have System Administrator privileges in Hub.
  • The key store must be in PKCS12 or JKS format.
  • The key store must be password protected.
  • The key store must contain a single entry.
