F5 FirePass VPN SSL Certificate CSR Creation

How to generate a CSR in F5 FirePass SSL VPN Appliance

  1. Click 'Server' from the Admin Console
  2. Hit Security
  3. Go to the link for Certificates
  4. Click the link to Generate a New Certificate Request
  5. Fill out the Certificate Request Form

    A simple form will display. Enter your company legal name and address information. The common name (domain name) entered should be the fully qualified domain name that will be used to access the F5 Firepass Device. For example: vpn.your_domain.com

    **NOTE: If you choose to enter a password in the 'Encryption Password' field, make sure to remember the password entered. You will need this password later when you install the certificate.

  6. Hit 'Generate Request'
  7. Download the Certificate Request

    When you download the CSR you will receive a .zip file that contains both the CSR and the private key. Save the private key in a secure location. You will need this private key later to install your certificate.

  8. Open your CSR with a text editor, then copy and paste the entire contents of the file to the E-Tugra Order Form as you place your certificate order.
