Error: “Invalid Certificate” When Installing SSL Certificate on ADC Appliance

Hidden Control Characters in CertificateKey File

You can use OpenSSL implementation of BSD Unix distribution on ADC to import/export the certificate and key files. The exported files are free of the control characters that are preventing successful installation of the certificate and key files:

  1. Use a secure copy program (WinSCP ) to copy the certificate and key files to the/nsconfig/ssl directory of the ADC appliance.

    The Certificate and Key files can also be uploaded to the ADC using the Configuration Utility. Navigate to Traffic Management > SSL > Manage Certificates / Keys / CSRs > Upload as shown in the following screen shots:

  2. Open a Secure Shell (SSH) session to the appliance, and after authentication, run the shell command to switch to shell.

  3. Navigate to /nsconfig/ssl directory:

    cd /nsconfig/ssl

  4. Use OpenSSL to import and export the certificate file. The following example is for PEM or Base64 certificates:

    openssl x509 -in <certificateFileName> -out <newCertificateFileName>

  5. Use OpenSSL to import and export the key file. The following example is for PEM or Base64 key files:

    openssl rsa -in <keyFileName> -out <newKeyFileName>

You will now be able to successfully import the certificate on the ADC appliance by using the new exported version of the files.

SSL Certificate not Encoded in Base-64 Format

Open the certificate on a Windows computer and convert it to Base-64 encoded X.509 (.CER) and then install the certificate on the appliance:

  1. Go to Start > Run and type mmc on a Windows machine.
