Here you can create and manage ICG certificates and first-authentication keys for connecting devices via IGEL Cloud Gateway (ICG).

For details of how to set up all components for a connection to the ICG, read Installation and Setup.

Certificates

Generate root certificate

Navigate to ICG instance view

Generate root certificate

  • Displayname: Name in the root certificate (common name, CN).
  • Your organization: Organization, company, government agency.
  • Your city or district: The location of the organization.
  • Your two-letter country code: ISO 3166 country code, e.g. DE for Germany.
  • Valid until: Local date on which the certificate expires. (Default: in 10 years)

Import root certificate

  • The file selection window opens, allowing you to select the certificate file which must be in the PEM format.

Generate a signed certificate

  • Name: Name in the certificate (common name, CN).

  • Your first name and surname: Name of the certificate holder.
  • Your organization: Organization, company, government agency.
  • Your city or district: The location of the organization.

    The name in a signed certificate must be different from the one in the root certificate with which it is signed. UMS provides a warning in this case: 

    Invalid Certificate

  • Your country code (two letters): ISO 3166 country code, e.g. DE for Germany.
  • Host name and/or IP of the target server for the certificate: Host name(s) and IP address(es) for which the certificate is valid. Multiple entries should be separated by a semicolon. To generate a wildcard certificate, use the asterisk, e.g. *.example.com.
  • Valid until: Local date on which the certificate expires. (Default: in a year)
  • Certificate type
    Possible options:
    - CA Certificate: The certificate can be used to sign other certificates, but it can not be used by the ICG.
    - End Entity: The certificate can be used by the ICG, but it can not be used to sign other certificates.

Context menu (root certificate)

  • Generate signed certificate: Collects certificate data and signs them with the selected root certificate.
  • Import signed certificate: Imports a certificate in PEM format that was already signed outside the UMS by the imported CA.
  • Import decrypted private key: Imports a private key file.

    If the private key is protected with a passphrase, you must decrypt it on the command line with OpenSSL before importing it: openssl rsa -in encrypted.key -out decrypted.key
  • Delete certificate: Deletes the certificate from the UMS.
  • Export certificate chain in the IGEL Cloud Gateway Keystore format: Produces a file for ICG installation program.
  • Export certificate: Exports certificate file in the PEM format.
  • Show content of the certificate: Shows the content of the certificate in a text window.

First-authentication Keys


Create new one-time passwords

Delete logon data

Disable logon data

Enable logon data

Icon Mailen

Send one-time passwords via mail

Export one-time passwords (in XML, HTML or CSV format)

Icon Kopieren

Allows you to copy one-time passwords to the clipboard

If you send one-time passwords via mail, anyone who can read the mail can log in to the IGEL Cloud Gateway. It is advisable to combine sending via mail with a link to unit IDs.

Create new first-authentication keys

You have the following options here:

  • Create new one-time keys
    • Quantity: Desired number of passwords to be created
  • Create new one-time passwords associated with a device
    • Unit ID
      - Add: Adds unit ID entered in the text field to the list.
      - Select: Selects from the devices in the UMS structure tree.
      - Import: Reads in a CSV file with unit IDs.
  • Create new mass-deployment key
    • Generate random mass-deployment key:

      A random multiple-time password will be generated. (Default)

      You can enter the desired password yourself.
