To establish a secure connection, a server certificate is required at one end of the connection. A root certificate of the Certificate Authority (CA) that issued the server certificate is required at the other end.
You can configure certificate chains, which contain intermediate certificates, between the server certificate and the root certificate. Both root certificates and intermediate certificates are referred to as trusted certificates.
When establishing a secure connection with a web browser on a user device, App Controller sends its certificate to the user device.
When receiving a server certificate, the web browser (for example, Internet Explorer) on the user device checks to see which CA issued the certificate and if the CA is trusted by the user device. If the CA is not trusted or if it is a test certificate, the web browser prompts the user to accept or decline the certificate (effectively accepting or declining the ability to access the site).
You might need to install several certificates on App Controller to facilitate secure communication. Each certificate serves a specific communication purpose.
