Manage CA and self-signed certificates

You can view the list of CA and self-signed certificates that come preloaded on Pearl-2. CA and self-signed certificates are used for server authentication if Verify server's identity is selected when 802.1x network security is configured, see Configure 802.1x network security and manage user certificates.

The self-signed certificate from Epiphan Video is selected by default. You can add more CA signed and self-signed certificates using the Admin panel, as well as delete any certificates that you've uploaded. You cannot delete any of the built-in CA certificates that came preloaded on Pearl-2. Security certificates must be PEM encoded.

When using the Epiphan Video self-signed certificate with Pearl-2:

  • Your web browser may warn of an untrusted certificate when you try to access Pearl's web-based Admin panel. You can dismiss the warning and continue to the Admin panel for your device.
  • Certain low and medium-level results are expected when scanning the network for vulnerabilities while Pearl-2 is connected and an active Admin panel session is in progress. Contact Epiphan Video Support for more information.
