Troubleshooting SSL Certificates in PAN-OS
SSL Certificates are used to provide trust, authentication, and secure communications between clients and servers. A signed certificate is trusted only if it is signed by a trusted root Certificate Authority (CA). A trusted certificate provides authentication when there is a match between the name within the certificate and the intended destination.
This document covers troubleshooting tips for general SSL certificates and the most common issues with certificates. The usage of SSL Certificates for the following Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS features are also described:
- GlobalProtect – For GlobalProtect Portal and GlobalProtect Gateway
