Setting up a server-based Domino® certification authority

You set up a server-based certification authority by setting up a certifier or certifiers, and then enabling them for the CA process.

About this task

Notes® certifiers are created first, and then migrated to the CA process.

Internet certifiers are created and registered using the CA process.

If your organization has existing Notes® certifiers, you can migrate them to the CA process.


  1. Migrate existing certifiers to the CA process.
  2. Create new certifiers.
  3. Add certifiers to the CA process on the server.
  4. For each Internet certifier, set up the Certificate Requests database.
  5. Set up SSL on the server.
