Installing Client Certificates

Client certificates are typically stored on the system or in the web browser's certificate store. To use a client certificate in Silk Performer, export the certificate from your web browser and import it into Silk Performer.

  1. From the menu bar, select Settings > Active Profile .
  2. In the shortcut list on the left side, click the Internet icon.
  3. Switch to the Security tab.
  4. In the Client certificate area, click Import and locate a certificate file of the format .p12 or .pfx (for example, C:\clientcert\johndoe.pfx).
  5. Enter the password you used for encryption when exporting the certificate from your Web browser.
  6. Click OK.

    This confirmation also creates a certificate file (.pem) in the Silk Performer user data directory (for example, <public user documents>\Silk Performer 21.0\Data\johndoe.pem).

    Note: Each proxy connection set up in the Silk Performer Recorder can be associated with a client certificate. The Silk Performer Recorder presents the client certificate to the Web server on behalf of the actual client.
