Bind an SSL certificate to a virtual server on the Citrix ADC appliance

An SSL certificate is an essential part of SSL encryption and decryption processes. The certificate is used during an SSL handshake to establish the identity of the SSL server, which is the Citrix ADC appliance as it acts as the SSL termination point for the clients.

The certificate used for processing the SSL transactions must be bound to the virtual server (SSL) that receives the SSL data.

To bind an SSL certificate to an SSL virtual server using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

bind ssl vs <vServerName> -certkeyName <certificate-KeyPairName>
show ssl vs <vServerName>
