Additional ADC configuration

1) Generate a key on the HSM. Use third party tools to create keys on the HSM.

2) Add an HSM key on the ADC.

Important!: The # character is not supported in a key name. If the key name include this character, the load key operation fails.

To add a Safenet HSM key by using the CLI:

At the command prompt, type:

add ssl hsmkey <KeyName> -hsmType SAFENET -serialNum <serial #> -password

where:

-keyName is the key created on the HSM by using third party tools.

-serialNum is the serial number of the partition on the HSM on which the keys are generated.

Note: For HSM in a high availability setup, use the serial number of the high availability group.

-password is the password of the partition on which the keys are present.

To add a Safenet HSM key by using the GUI:

Navigate to Traffic Management > SSL > HSM and add an HSM key. You must specify the HSM Type as SAFENET.

3) Add a certificate-key pair on the ADC. You must first use a third party tool to generate a certificate associated with the key. Then, copy the certificate to the /nsconfig/ssl/ directory on the ADC.

Note: The key must be an HSM key.

To add a certkey pair on the ADC by using the CLI:

At the command prompt, type:

add ssl certkey <CertkeyName> -cert <cert name> -hsmkey <KeyName>

To add a certkey pair on the ADC by using the GUI:

  1. Navigate to Traffic Management > SSL.
  2. In Getting Started, select Install Certificate (HSM) and create a certificate-key pair using an HSM key.

4) Create a virtual server and bind the certificate-key pair to this virtual server.

For information about creating a virtual server, click SSL virtual server configuration.

For information about adding a certificate-key pair, click Add or update a certificate-key pair.

For information about binding a certificate-key pair to an SSL virtual server, click Bind the certificate-key pair to the SSL virtual server.
