Download / a root and identity certificate

From an enrollment form, the Certificate Manager creates an enrollment request. The contents of the request file are transferred to the CA via cut and paste. The CA issues a new identity certificate. After the CA generates an identity certificate, the identity and root certificates are downloaded to the PC. Complete the following steps to download the certificates:

Step 1 Choose an encoding scheme: DER or Base 64 encoding. Either will work and the client can handle both schemes.

Step 2 Select the type of download: CA certificate or CA certificate path. The CA certificate downloads the identity certificate only. The root certificate is downloaded next or the CA certificate path is selected. The CA certificate path downloads both the identity and root certificate, PKCS#7. Selecting the download type starts the download.

Step 3 The Save-in window opens. Choose the destination folder from the Save In drop-down menu. In the file name window, enter the name of the file; the default file name is certnew. Re-name the file to something more descriptive such as PC new_york. Make note of the destination folder and file name; you will need them when the certificates are imported. Click Save.

Step 4 The Download Complete window opens. Click Close. The process is complete. The certificates are on the PC's hard drive.
