Setting up SSL in BI 4.1


Hello Colleagues,

I am trying to setup SSL in BI 4.1. In the Admin guide we have the first step as :

8.13.2 Setting up SSL when the certificate is managed by a certificate authority

When setting up SSL for server communication, follow these steps if the certificate is managed by a

certificate authority.

1. Export your desired certificate with its private key to PKCS #12 (.PFX) format. This will be used as the certificate for the certificate authority.

What does this mean? Do I need the CA certificate with its Private key?

If I have private key of the CA then I can behave as the CA itself!

Normally I generate my CSR and get it signed from the CA and then import both signed server cert + CA cert. Then SSL should work.

Thanks and Regards,
