When configuring SSL for the IBM
® Sametime server, you can obtain a copy of the trusted root certificate used for signing the IBM Lotus
® server's SSL certificate from the original Certificate Authority.
About this task
If you are unable to obtain a copy of the Lotus Domino
server's SSL server certificate, you can request a copy of the trusted root certificate from a CA.
Normally, you request a certificate from a CA by browsing to the CA's website. For example, follow these steps to request a certificate from VeriSign:
Parent topic: Obtaining a copy of the trusted root certificate
- Open a browser and navigate to the VeriSign site:
<a href="http://www.verisign.com" target="external">www.verisign.com</a>
- Follow the instructions on the website to request a certificate.
Once the certificate request is approved, you will receive an email explaining how to pick up the certificate.
- Pick up the certificate as instructed (for example, by browsing to the website and copying it from a field on the specified page).
You can provide a file name for the certificate when receiving it from the CA and then store it in the Sametime server's data directory.
