SAP BO SIA SSL configuration

Dear SCN-Community,

currently I´m in trouble with ssl configuration for BI platform. I have successful added my 3rd party signed certificates to the tomcat. So actually all HTTP requests are secured.

Second part is to secure the SIA. Each guide/how-to (for e.g. Configure SIA to Use SSL Certificates in BI 4.2 SP4) use the files which you can see below.

I think these are self generated files. Is there a way to use my 3rd party signed certificates or should we use the self generated version?

Kind regards

    1. Corba SSL is used to secure communication between BI Platform nodes and between them and webapp server - meaning no external user or any user visibility into it - that means self signed certificate is perfectly acceptable here. You only need authority signed certificate for HTTPS/SSL on your web servers/web app servers.
    2. mentioning which version you use might help as well - new Admin guides have the steps on how to use certificate authority certificates in them.
