Using the Casper JSS’s built-in certificate authority to generate Tomcat SSL certificates

I upgraded my Casper test box this morning to Casper 8.51. When I logged in, I got a message that my self-signed SSL certificate had expired a while ago.

This was certainly true, so I decided to change my Tomcat SSL certificate to a certificate issued by the JSS’s own built-in PKI certificate authority. If you also want to do this, here’s how:

1. Log into your Casper JSS.

2. Click on the Settings tab.

3. Click on the General Settings link

5. Click the Replace with certificate from the JSS’s built-in CA link

6. When prompted, you’ll need to restart Tomcat to apply the changes. (I rebooted my Casper test box to do this.)
