Providing an SSL certificate to the external SMU

Server and Cluster Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number

Both the server and the SMU are preconfigured with default SSL certificates. These default certificates should provide an acceptable level of security for most users. For added security, this certificate may be replaced with a certificate signed by a certificate authority (for example, Verisign).

To request a certificate from a certificate authority (CA):
  • Generate a custom private key (optional)
  • Generate a certificate signing request (CSR)

By default, all protocols and cipher suites are enabled. However, occasionally a protocol or cipher suite may be no longer secure and the admin can use the Security Options page to prevent a browser from communicating with the SMU using that protocol or suite.
