Generating device certificates
The portal includes a feature that allows you to generate a certificate for your device, using the private key and passphrase for the certificate authority. Once generated, you can download the certificate and add it to your device.
 
Note 
To generate certificates from the Device Management page:
1.
Make sure that each device already has a certificate authority (CA) defined (see Managing certificates for your IPsec devices).
2.
Click the Generate Certificate button () in the toolbar above the table.
This button is disabled when no CA has been defined for the selected device.
3.
In the Generate Device Certificate dialog box, click Browse to navigate to the Private key for the certificate authority.
The private key file has a name like "cakey.pem" or "privkey.key." It is either provided with a purchased CA or generated with your organization's self-signed CA.
