This comprehensive guide will walk you through the process of installing an SSL certificate on an SAP Application Server. In this guide, we will take you through the process of generating a CSR on SAP & install the SSL certificate once you receive it from the CA. So, let’s get started!
CSR Generation: The Beginning
To get an SSL certificate, you must first generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) and the private key, which will remain stored on the SAP server. Use our CSR Generator Tool to create CSR and Private Key.
The CA will then issue an SSL certificate that you can install on your SAP server to enable secure connections. How? Let’s get started.
To install an SSL Certificate on your SAP system, download the necessary SSL files from your CA’s email & prepare them for installation. The files must adhere to the PKCS#7 certificate chain format. Once you have the SSL files, you can perform the following steps to install the SSL Certificate:
After downloading & extracting the ZIP Folder, you will get the SSL Certificate, intermediate certificate (CA Bundle), and the root certificate from your CA. Open these files with a text editor and copy the contents of each certificate into a separate text (.txt) file.
Depending on your system setup, you will need to add the intermediate & root certificates in one of three locations: Certificate Database, File System, or a Different PSE.
Install the intermediate & root certificates in one of three locations “Certificate Database, File System, or a Different PSE” depending on your system configuration.
These steps will enable you to add intermediate and root certificates to your SAP system, completing the SSL Certificate installation process.
Congratulations, your SSL certificate is now installed on your SAP system.
It is advisable to run a diagnostic test on your SSL installation once the installation is completed in SAP, as some SSL errors or vulnerabilities may still exist. We recommend using our SSL Checker tool to review the proper SSL certificate Installation.
When looking to purchase an SSL certificate for SAP, it’s essential to consider the reputation of the SSL provider and the features they offer. Certera is a reliable SSL certificate provider that offers a wide range of SSL certificates, including those that work well with SAP.
