This section describes how to create a certificate signing request as well as how to purchase an SSL certificate from a Public Certificate Authority. You must coordinate with your IT department and only use an approved Public Certificate Authority for your location.
  • The steps to purchase a domain name and a security certificate vary according to the registrar. Use the instructions in this document as an example. You may choose a different registrar to purchase a domain name and security certificate.
  • The domain name and security certificate costs are not included as part of the purchase cost of the MAP Gateway.
  • Domain names and third-party security certificates expire. We recommend registering domain names and third-party certificates for the longest duration available (typically 3 years). Plan to renew domain names and security certificates before they expire.
