How to Install a SonicWALL Certificate


SonicWALL supports Verisign, Thawte, Entrust, Microsoft CA Server, RSA Keon and iPlanet security certificates. After generating and creating a new certificate with SonicWALL, you must submit it to a Certificate Authority, or CA. Then, a CA sends you a signed certificate, which you import back into SonicWALL. A self-signed certificate provides similar features; however, websites display the message "Untrusted root CA certificate" if one of the certificates is unsigned and untrusted.

  • Log in to the SonicWALL Network Security Appliance portal.

  • Click the "System" heading section to expand the list, and then click the "Certificates" link.

  • Click the "Imported Certificates and Requests" radio button under the Certificates and Certificate Requests section.

  • Click the "Import a CA certificate from a PKCS#7 (.p7b), PEM (.pem) or DER (.der or .cer) encoded file" under the Import Certificate section.

  • Click the "Browse" button to select your certificate.

  • Click the "Import" button once you have selected a certificate.

  • Click the "Green arrow" icon, under the Configure column, to import a CRL.

  • Click either the "Browse" button to import a CRL directly from a PEM- or DER-encoded file, or type in the CRL's URL address.

  • Click the "Import" button once more to finish the process.

Tips & Warnings

  • The option "Invalidate Certificates and Security Associations if CRL import or processing fails" is available, if necessary.
