About this task

To back up a certificate for a network engine, select Tools > Certificate Management, then click Export Certificate(s). For details, see Exporting A Certificate.

SCT also backs up and stores certificates if you export or backup an archive database. To create a backup of an archive and a certificate, adhere to the following steps:
  1. Select Tools > Database > Create Backup. See Create Backup for more information.
  2. Select Tools > Database > Export Database. See Export Database for more information.
Important: As an important restriction for creating and restoring database archive backups that contain network engine certificates, you must use the same SCT computer for both operations. Do not restore the archive using a different SCT computer, or the certificate data is deleted. This is a security precaution that protects against certificate theft.
