5.2 Add a Self-Signed Digital Certificate to the Appliance

The appliance ships with a self-signed digital certificate. The certificate works for both the appliance (port 9443) and the PlateSpin Transformation Manager software (ports 8182 and 8183).

NOTE:This configuration task is optional. For higher security, Micro Focus recommends that you use a trusted server certificate that is signed by a trusted certificate authority (CA) such as VeriSign or Equifax.

You can use your own existing signed certificate, or you can use the Digital Certificate tool on the appliance to create a certificate, have it signed by a trusted certificate authority, and then add it to the appliance. See Section 8.5, Digital Certificates.
