Create and import custom certificate for Reporter 10.2.x
Last Updated February 16, 2018
Reporter 10.2.x adds the ability to create and import a custom certificate to be used to secure the Reporter management interface and FTPS server.
Reporter 10.2.x requires the certificate and key to be converted to a PKCS12 certificate.
This example uses OpenSSL on Linux.
Create the Certificate:
Generate the certificate and key. The OU must be the Reporter serial number. The CN must be the device IP or hostname. This example creates a certificated called "newcert" and a key called "newkey". This certificate is valid for 365 days.
Convert the certificate and key into PKCS12 format. The key name must be exported as "defaultcertkey". This example combines the certificate and key created in step one. It will create a new certificate called "reportercert.p12" with the password of "testing".
