About this task
To implement third-party or self-signed SSL certificates for MAP Gateway, follow the steps included in this document.
The options for SSL certificates include the following:
- Third-Party – Coordinate with the local IT department before installing the MAP Gateway. Follow the instructions included in the Installing a Security Certificate on a Client That is Connecting to MAP Gateway section. If you need to create a request for a certificate signed by a public CA, see the Creating a Certificate Request (CSR) section.
- Self-Signed – Follow the installation process that allows you to generate a self-signed certificate in the Creating a Self-Signed Certificate section.
Note: We do not recommend a self-signed SSL certificate for networks exposed directly to the Internet (no firewall or VPN).
You must have Port 80 (TCP) and Port 443 (SSL) open on the computer that is connected to the MAP Gateway.
