plug-in installation completes, a URL is displayed, which you need to configure on the switch as the URL
of the server for certificate registration.
Modify the certificate service attributes
From the start menu, select Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Certificate Authority. If the CA
server and SCEP plug-in have been installed successfully, there should be two certificates issued by
the CA to the RA. Right-click on the CA server in the navigation tree and select Properties > Policy
Module. Click Properties and then select Follow the settings in the certificate template, if
applicable. Otherwise, automatically issue the certificate.
Modify the Internet Information Services (IIS) attributes
From the start menu, select Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services
(IIS) Manager and then select Web Sites from the navigation tree. Right-click on Default Web Site and
select Properties > Home Directory. Specify the path for certificate service in the Local path text box.
In addition, you are recommended to specify an available port number as the TCP port number of the
default Web site to avoid conflict with existing services.
After completing the above configuration, check that the system clock of the switch is synchronous to
that of the CA server, ensuring that the switch can request a certificate normally.
Configure the switch
Configure the entity DN
# Configure the entity name as aaa and the common name as switch.
[Switch] pki entity aaa
[Switch-pki-entity-aaa] common-name switch
Configure the PKI domain
# Create PKI domain torsa and enter its view.
[Switch] pki domain torsa
# Configure the name of the trusted CA as myca.
[Switch-pki-domain-torsa] ca identifier myca
# Configure the URL of the registration server in the format of http://host:port/ certsrv/mscep/mscep.dll,
where host:port indicates the IP address and port number of the CA server.
# Set the registration authority to RA.
[Switch-pki-domain-torsa] certificate request from ra
# Specify the entity for certificate request as aaa.
[Switch-pki-domain-torsa] certificate request entity aaa
Generate a local key pair using RSA
[Switch] public-key local create rsa
The range of public key size is (512 ~ 2048).
NOTES: If the key modulus is greater than 512,
It will take a few minutes.
