security certificate install

Install a Digital Certificate

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The security certificate install command installs digital security certificates signed by a certificate authority (CA) and the public key certificate of the root CA. Digital security certificates also include the intermediate certificates to construct the chain for server certificates (the server type), client-side root CA certificates (the client-ca type), or server-side root CA certificates (the server-ca type). with FIPS enabled, the following restrictions apply to the certificate getting installed. server/client/server-ca/client-ca: Key size >= 2048,server/client: Hash function (No MD-5, No SHA-1),server-ca/client-ca: (Intermediate CA), Hash Function (No MD-5, No SHA-1), server-ca/client-ca: (Root CA), Hash Function (No MD-5)

Parameters

-vserver <Vserver Name> - Name of Vserver
This specifies the Vserver that contains the certificate.
-type <type of certificate> - Type of Certificate
This specifies the certificate type. Valid values are the following:
  • server - includes server certificates and intermediate certificates.
  • client-ca - includes the public key certificate for the root CA of the SSL client
  • server-ca - includes the public key certificate for the root CA of the SSL server to which Data ONTAP is a client
  • client - includes a self-signed or CA-signed digital certificate and private key to be used for Data ONTAP as an SSL client
[-subtype <kmip-cert>] - Certificate Subtype
This specifies a certificate subtype. This optional parameter can have an empty value (the default). The only valid value is as follows:
  • kmip-cert - this is a Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) certificate
[-kmip-server-ip <IP Address>] - IPv4 and IPv6 address
This parameter is applicable only to the kmip-cert subtype. It specifies the IP address of the KMIP server.

Examples

This example installs a CA-signed certificate (along with intermediate certificates) for a Vserver named vs0.
