Configuring Digital Certificates

Select select PeopleTools, then select Security, then select Security Objects, then select Digital Certificates.

The Digital Certificates page displays your inventory of server-side digital certificates. This page also enables you to import new certificates from a certificate authority.

Note: For user certificates, no redundant setup of user certificates is required. With a few lines of Signon PeopleCode, you can reuse the existing PKI server that you have in place.

Note: Currently, root CA key size is limited to 1024 bits.

To view details regarding a particular certificate, click Details.
