Generating a key ring file for TLS connections

To set up TLS on the trial server, you need a key ring containing a server certificate from a third-party Internet certificate authority (CA).

About this task

A server certificate is a binary file that uniquely identifies the server. The server certificate is stored on the server's hard drive and contains a public key, a name, an expiration date, and a digital signature. The key ring also contains root certificates used by the server to make trust decisions.

For more information, see Managing TLS certificates with Certificate Manager.
