Certificate export on a fips enabled firewall

L0 Member

Hello All, I currently have an HA pair of 3260 firewalls that have a GP portal and gateway. My firewalls are in FIPS mode. I want to setup a redundant pair of firewalls in AWS as my DR running GP with the same config. So I would have a monitor setup that if my main site becomes unreachable for more then 30 min my DNS changes priorities to my DR site at AWS and lets people authenticate there instead. The issue I'm running into is I want to use the same portal certificate for both sites but i cannot export the certificate with the key since its in FIPS Mode and i would like to avoid having 2 certificates for the same domain name. Has anyone out there done this on a FIPs firewall maybe through the CLI to export the cert? Or is there a better way to accomplish the same goal without having to to have multiple certs with the same domain name? We also require certificate verification so we would have to have the portal cert installed on every machine as well but without the key obviously. We are also using Always on VPN with Machine certs as well. But that is not the issue. Palos are 10.2.2h2. GP is 6.0.3.

Where did the current certificate come from?

Are you doing certificate checks on the endpoints now?
