Steps to Install SSL Certificate from the Cisco ASA Command Line (Alternate Installation Process)
Step 1 – Enter the following line from the ciscoasa(config)# line:
crypto ca authenticate my.thesslstore.trustpoint
Here, my.CA.trustpoint is the name of trust point, which is created when your certificate request (CSR) was created.
Step 2 – Now, enter the entire content of CA.crt file followed by the word quit' on the line by itself.
Users should remember here, that the CA.crt file can be opened and edited with a standard text editor, and the entire body of that file should be entered when prompted.
Step 3 – Now, expand Certificate Management' and then select CA Certificates' and click on Add'.
Step 4 – Enter Exit' after the certificate has been imported successfully.
With this step, the intermediate certificate file is now installed. Now you need to install your_domainname_com.crt file.
Step 5 – Enter the following text from the ciscoasa(config)# line:
crypto ca import my.thesslstore.trustpoint certificate
In this, my.thesslstore.trustpoint' is the name of the trust point created when your CSR was created.
Step 6 – Now, proceed by entering the entire content of your_domainname_com.crt' file, followed by the word quit' on a line by itself.
Here, users should note two things: 1) your_domainname_com.crt file can be opened and edited using a standard text editor; 2) Users should enter the entire body of that file when prompted.
After this step, you shall soon receive a message that the certificate was imported successfully.
