Q. What is the process I need to follow to upload an SSL certificate to the InterMapper server?
A. There are four important terms related to SSL protection (and three of those terms include the word "certificate"):
a. Private Key (KEY)
b. Certificate (CERT)
c. Certificate Signing Request (CSR)
d. Certificate Authority (CA)
Here is the workflow for importing a CERT into InterMapper:
1. InterMapper creates a KEY and CSR and gives you the text of the CSR.
2. You send the CSR to your CA.
3. The CA signs your CSR to generate your CERT.
4. You import the CERT into InterMapper in the Server Settings > Server Configuration > SSL Certificate window.
The security of the system is provided by the private KEY -- which never leaves the InterMapper server.
