Self Signed Certificate for GlobalProtect VPN

L0 Member

Hello All!


We are having an issue regarding the Palo self-signed certificates.

As suggested without 3rd party paid certificate we are using a self signed CA and a certi issued by the CA.

(added to the proper ssl/tls service profile)


But the vpn portal does not show the generated Cert with the self signed CA, it shows the generated Cert with an unknown CA which expired in 2021!


Are we facing a bug or?

Hi @TarofMate ,


Can you add some more details on how you configured it ?


Did you list the root-CA under the Trusted Root Section in the Portal configuration ?

It turned out our Internet FW did SSL decryption, and in this cases as the seld signed was untrusted, it showed us the "Untrusted Decrypt" cert 🙂
