Novell Silverstream


Download the Trustwave® intermediate certificates

Depending on the version of your Novell Silverstream server, it may require you to install DER-encoded certificates or PEM-encoded certificates. It's not easy to tell which version you have until you actually reach the area where you install the SSL certificates. Due to that, we recommend that you download the DER-encoded certificate for your server from the Trustwave® Control Center. The .cer file you received within the ZIP file when your certificate was issued may also be required.

If you need help keeping your certificates straightened out, the DER certificates end with the file extension .der and if you open them in notepad, there is very little readable text. If you open a PEM file in notepad, you will notice dashed lines at the top and bottom which have readable text.

Install your Trustwave® SSL certificate

Start the SMC and click the "Security" icon. Select "Certificates", then "RSA", and then "Import Certificate". The panel will ask for the path to your new certificate. If your Silverstream accepts PEM-encoded certificates, there may be an option to select the encoding type. If there is an option for that, please choose "PEM" or "Base64". Move your Trustwave® SSL certificate onto the Silverstream server and browse for the path.

If there is no option to set the encoding type to "PEM" or "Base64", use the DER-encoded certificate from the Trustwave® Control Center.

After you locate your certificate, enter a password to protect the certificate. Remember this password - without it, you cannot export your certificate or make changes to your configuration.
