LetsEncrypt SSL & Forward Trust Certificate option Grayout

L1 Bithead

I have installed LetsEncrypt's Root, Intermediate and Certificate with Private Key on firewall. For some reason all options are grayout. I used Certbot to generate certificate. How I can resolve this?

I think none of the free SSL will work with decryption. What kind of certificate I will need for decryption?

You wouldn't get a certificate for decryption from any public CA. Generally what you would do is generate a certificate with your internal PKI, or if you don't have one you would generate one on the firewall itself. You would then import that certificate on your endpoints so that it trusts certificates generated by the firewall.

Review the following KB https://knowledgebase.paloaltonetworks.com/KCSArticleDetail?id=kA10g000000ClmyCAC that goes over the process in-detail.

I am creating local database for non-AD users for user-id authentication. It does not work without decryption. New browsers does not redirect pages with local cert. How to resolve this?
