A Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificate is primarily used to provide a secure connection between a server and a browser. The SSL certificate encrypts the sensitive information like login credentials, device credentials, and other details that you enter on the server. The encrypted information is communicated between the server and the respective browsers for authentication.
In Prime Collaboration, when a device is added, the SSL certificates are exchanged for credential validation by accessing a protected resource using HTTPs. During exchange, the SSL certificate does not get stored in Prime Collaboration trust-store and communication to the device fails, at a later point of time. It is recommended that you manually import the SSL certificate to Prime Collaboration trust-store to access the device.
Prime Collaboration enables you to check the authenticity of the SSL certificate during its communication with the devices or applications over HTTPs. However, this is not mandatory as you can still continue to discover the devices without authenticating the certificate.
By default, Prime Collaboration does not validate the certificates from the devices or applications it communicates. To enable the SSL certificate authentication:
