Install SSL certificate in Foundry Server Iron



Step 1: Save your SSL Certificate File

Firstly when your issuance email arrives it will contain your web server certificate. Copy your web server certificate into a text editor such as Notepad including the header and footer.
You should then have a text file that looks like:
[encoded data]
Make sure you have 5 dashes to either side of the BEGIN CERTIFICATE and END CERTIFICATE and that no white space,
extra line breaks or additional characters have been inadvertently added.
Save the certificate file as certificate.crt
Step 2: Obtain the Intermediate CA certificate

Download Intermediate CA.
Save as intermediate.crt
Step 3: Enabling the SCP server on the ServerIron
Configure a domain name.
ServerIron>enable No password has been assigned yet... ServerIron#conf term
ServerIron(config)#ip dns domain-name
Create an RSA key of SSH (This has nothing to do with SSL keys).
ServerIron(config)#crypto key generate dsa
Create a username.
ServerIron(config)#username admin password foundry
Allow empty SSH passwords.
ServerIron(config)#ip ssh permit-empty-password yes ge 11 of 11
Step 4: Upload a PEM key file
To upload a PEM formatted key to the ServerIron, use the following syntax:
pscp <local_filename> <username>@<ip_address>:sslkeypair:<remote_filename>:<password>:pem
For Example:
C:\certs>pscp foo.key admin@
Step 5: Upload a PEM certificate file
To upload a PEM formatted certificate to the ServerIron, use the following syntax:
pscp <local_filename> <username>@<ip_address>:sslcert:<remote_filename>:pem
For Example:
C:\certs>pscp foo.cer admin@
Step 6: Upload the Intermediate CA
To chain a certificate, you must upload the Intermediate CA’s certificate to the ServerIron. To link the CA’s certificate to the server certificate, you simply use the same destination file name. For example, if the filename foo.cer is the server’s certificate that was issued by an Intermediate CA, that Intermediate CA’s certificate will also be named foo.cer. Instead of overwriting the original file, the ServerIron will append the original foo.cer to the new incoming foo.cer. To upload the PEM formatted Intermediate CA’s certificate, use the following syntax:
pscp <local_filename> <username>@<ip_address>:sslcert:<remote_filename>:pem
For Example:
C:\certs>pscp ca-cert.cer admin@
