Importing digital certificates and RSA private key files
To allow a client to communicate with other Brocade device using an SSL connection, you configure a set of digital certificates and RSA public-private key pairs on the device. A digital certificate is used for identifying the connecting client to the server. It contains information about the issuing Certificate Authority, as well as a public key. You can either import digital certificates and private keys from a server, or you can allow the Brocade device to create them.
If you want to allow the Brocade device to create the digital certificates, refer to the next section, Generating an SSL certificate. If you choose to import an RSA certificate and private key file from a client, you can use TFTP to transfer the files.
Brocade(config)#ip ssl certificate-data-file tftp 192.168.9.210 certfileSyntax: [no] ip ssl certificate-data-file tftpip-address certificate-filename
Brocade(config)#ip ssl private-key-file tftp 192.168.9.210 keyfileSyntax: [no] ip ssl private-key-file tftp ip-address key-filename
The ip-address is the IP address of a TFTP server that contains the digital certificate or private key.
