Need to confirm on certificate if only CA option is checked then it is Public CA signed certificate?
which type of cert it is when only CA option is checked?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Are you asking for a cert that you have created on your PA (or one that you have imported from a corporate CA) or a completely different cert?
When you click the "Certificate Authority" box when generating a certificate, it means that other certificates can be signed by that certificate. For example, if you wanted a full certificate chain that is all self-signed it would be:
Root Certificate - Marked As Certificate Authority
Intermediate Certificate (Signed by Root Certificate) - Marked as Certificate Authority
Primary Certificate (Signed by Intermediate Certificate) - Not marked as Certificate Authority
Edit: and no, marking a certificate as a certificate authority does not make it a publically signed certificate - i.e. devices won't trust it.
To get a publically signed certificate, you need to generate a certificate signing request (CSR) by generating a certificate and then select "Signed by: External Authority"
