Several certificates may have to be combined to a certificate chain. This is especially the case when, besides a root certificate, further intermediate certificates are required to prove a certificate trustworthy.
Adequate administrative permissions
- Open a shell and log on as root user.
- Execute the following command:
cd <FramworkHome >/common/conf
- Execute the following command in one line to combine a root certificate: ca_root.pem with the intermediate certificates im_cert1.pem and im_cert2.pem :
cat ca_root.pem im_cert1.pem im_cert2.pem > ca_chain.pem
You can shorten or extend the certificate list at will.
The newly created certificate chain is stored under the name ca_chain.pem
in the current directory.
