SSL证书安装指南 - F5 Big IP Controller 4.X

To install your Certificate and Intermediate CA Certificate, follow these instructions:

a. Fetch your certificate and the Intermediate CA certificate:

1. You will receive an email when your certificate is issued.
2. Copy and Paste your certificate (first certificate) to Notepad and save as a cert.cer
3. Copy and Paste the Intermediate CA Certificate (second certificate) to Notepad and save as a intermediate.cer

b. Install your certificate:

Installing certificates from the certificate authority (CA)
After you obtain a valid x509 certificate from a certificate authority (CA) for the SSL Accelerator, you must copy it onto each BIG-IP Controller in the redundant configuration. You can configure the accelerator with certificates using the Configuration utility or from the command line.

To install certificates from the CA using the Configuration utility

1. In the navigation pane, click Proxies. The Proxies screen opens.
2. On Proxies screen, click the Install SSL Certificate Request tab. The Install SSL Certificate screen opens.
3. In the Certfile Name box, type the fully qualified domain name of the server with the file extension .crt. If you generated a temporary certificate when you submitted a request to the CA, you can select the name of the certificate from the drop down list. This allows you to overwrite the temporary certificate with the certificate from the CA.
4. Paste the text of the certificate into the install SSL Certificate window. Make sure you include the BEGIN CERTIFICATE line and the END CERTIFICATE line. For an example of a certificate, see Figure 8.3.
5. Click the Write Certificate File button to install the certificate. After the certificate is installed, you can continue with the next step in creating an SSL gateway for the server.

To install certificates from the CA using the command line
Copy the certificate into the following directory on each BIG-IP Controller in a redundant system:

/config/bigconfig/ssl.crt/

Note: The certificate you receive from the certificate authority (CA) should overwrite the temporary certificate generated by genkey or gencert.

If you used the genkey or gencert utilities to generate the request file, a copy of the corresponding key should already be in the following directory on the BIG-IP Controller:

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

After the certificate is installed, you can continue with the next step in creating an SSL gateway for the server.

To install certificates from the CA using the command line
Copy the certificate into the following directory on each BIG-IP Controller in a redundant system:

/config/bigconfig/ssl.crt/

Note: The certificate you receive from the certificate authority (CA) should overwrite the temporary certificate generated by genkey or gencert.

If you used the genkey or gencert utilities to generate the request file, a copy of the corresponding key should already be in the following directory on the BIG-IP Controller:

/config/bigconfig/ssl.key/

To install intermediate CA certificate using the command line
*Copy the intermediate CA certificate into each BIG-IP Controller in a redundant system. To install a intermediate CA certificate, follow the steps below.

# Cut and paste the entire text of the certificate you saved, including the -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and -----END CERTIFICATE----- lines,

into a file named intermediate-ca.crt. Be careful not to include any leading or trailing whitespace before the beginning and ending hyphens.

# Place the intermediate-ca.crt file in the directory:

/config/bigconfig/ssl.crt

The full path to the file is:

/config/bigconfig/ssl.crt/intermediate-ca.crt

Note: The ssl.crt directory is used to store certificates and certificate authorities.

WARNING:In a redundant system, the keys and certificates must be in place on both controllers before you configure the SSL Accelerator. You must do this manually; the configuration synchronization utilities do not perform this function.
