Generate private key for new SSL certificate

Generate private key for new SSL certificate

By default, SSL is disabled. You can generate a private key to enable SSL after you generate a new certificate. You can use a valid self-signed certificate if you have a private key or a PKCS-12 file, and the private key and certificate were generated from the same Certificate Signing Request (CSR).

1.
On the left navigation pane, click Settings to display the Control Panel, then click Security to display the Security Settings page.
2.
Click Enable SSL to use a new certificate or a valid self-signed SSL certificate. Note that Quest KACE does not recommend using a self-signed certificate.
