The last step is to import the identity and root certificates into the certificate store. Clicking on the Import button brings up the Import Certificate Window. You choose whether you are going to import from a file or from a Microsoft Certificate Store and browse to the appropriate file.

The following fields are available:

■ Import Path—The complete pathname for the certificate. You can type the name or browse your file system to locate the file.

■ Import Password—This password must exactly match the password given during enrollment (online) or given when exported (if a file), including upper and lower case letters. For example, sKate8 is not exactly the same as Skate8. In online enrollment, this password is kept with the certificate; in file enrollment, this password is not retained.

■ New Password—The password to be stored with the certificate. Use this password to protect the certificate while it is in the certificate store. This password is optional but we recommend that you always protect your certificate with a password.

Confirm Password—The password that you enter here must match what you entered in the New Password field.

To complete the import request, click the Import button.
