Importing SSL Certificate AND Private Key?

Hello

We'd like to install proper (ie. signed by a normal CA) SSL certificates on our iLO 2, iLO 3 and iLO 4 systems. As there's a larger number of systems, we'd like to install a wildcard certificate, eg. *.ilo.company.fyi.

To do so, we'd also need to import the SSL private key on the iLO systems. How can I do that? The web interface just talks about importing a certificate and probably assumes, that the key is generated on the system when clicking "Create Certificate Request".

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot,

Alexander

Re: Importing SSL Certificate AND Private Key?

If you follow this link you should see iLO documentation.  Look at theuser guide and the security brief for information about creating and importing SSL certificates

Hello Jimmy

Hm, neither in the Security Technology Brief nor in the User Guide, I can find information on how I can import a key.

Can you please be more specific?

Thanks,

Alexander

The information starts on page 74 of the users guide and page 20 of the technology brief

Hi

Pardon, but where on page 20 of the brief does the documentation discuss how a private key can be imported? I'm just not finding it.

Again, could you be so kind and be even more specific?

Thanks

Re: Importing SSL Certificate AND Private Key?

hello again

I've just re-read pages 74-77 of the user guide, and I really don't find anything there, which relates to my specific question.

Can you please help?

Thanks a lot

Re: Importing SSL Certificate AND Private Key?

What I've pointed you to is how certificates can be installed in iLO. I don't think there is a way to install a private key.

Hello

Ah, okay. But honestly, that was a tremendously complicated way of saying "I don't know" and/or "HPE equipment doesn't support customers who need this functionality", don't you think? :-)

All this RTFM, for nothing ;-)

Re: Importing SSL Certificate AND Private Key?

Sorry, I quickly glanced at your original message and thought you were asking how to import a certificate as that question comes up often.

Re: Importing SSL Certificate AND Private Key?

Importing a private key isn't secure.  Usually you generate a CSR and get it signed and then import that.
