Certificate used by communication channel


Is there any way to find out the communication channel name which is using a particular SSL certificate imported in TrustedCAs.

    Hello Apu,

    Unfortunately, no, as to my knowledge. In communication channels, there is no specification of which particular imported certificate entry (containing SSL certificate / chain of certificates) has to be used. Instead of this, at runtime, when corresponding channel initiates HTTPS connection to the target, it uses entire content of key storage view 'TrustedCAs' while executing certificate chain verifier logic during SSL handshake process with the target (and scanning TrustedCAs entries for a valid and trusted certificate chain compared to the one provided by the target). Which means, at design/configuration time, there is no straightforward possibility to execute SSL certificate "where-used" action.

    Having written so, I shall note that it might be helpful to display SSL certificate in question and check subject and subject alternative names in it, which will give a hint regarding which host names the certificate has been issued for, and then correlate these findings with communication channels that use corresponding host names as targets, but this will require a bit of manual work and efforts, especially if there are many SSL certificate to be checked.

    Yes you can find it using extended search option in ID part.

    But as mentioned if you are sure that the particular SSL certificate is mentioned in your communication channel only.
