Certificate Store

Post by dhuesman »

I've a set of ".cert" files which I'd like to incorporate into the GoAnywhere services location where certificates are monitored for expiration. I know the location of where all certificates or keys are stored but would like to keep these separate. Is it possible to store the raw cert files on the GoAnywhere server and take advantage of this expiration manager? NOTE: These are individual CERTs which we use to connect securely to various HTTPS and FTPS sites. The software we use simply searches the entire "store" ~ simple folder structure really to obtain complete chain certs and complete the secure handshake. I can use a tool like portecle to examine the individual certs or OpenSSL to scan the files but that's not optimal and OpenSSL is seen as a security risk...

Any suggestions, would be appreciated.

Thank You.

The expiring alert only applies to the default key stores. With this being said, you would have to import those keys into the Private/Trusted key stores before they would be checked for expiration dates.
