CA EEM supports certificates that are created with key lengths of 1024, 2048, and 4096 and with digest algorithms SHA1, SHA256, SHA384, and SHA512.
Certificates are used for the SSL communication between the following components for enhanced security:
  • CA EEM SDK and CA EEM Server
  • CA EEM Server and LDAP Server
The following changes take place when you upgrade CA EEM to the r12.51 version:
  • By default, the generated certificates have the 1024 key length and the SHA1 digest algorithm.
  • The certificates in the iTechnology folder are migrated from the .conf file to .cer and .key files.
CA EEM Server uses the following certificates:
  • igateway.cer
    For the SSL communication between the following:
    • CA EEM Server and CA EEM SDK
    • CA EEM Server and browser
  • icontrol.cer
    For decrypting the CA EEM credentials.
  • iauthority.cer
    For establishing trust between the CA EEM Servers.
  • rootcert.cer
    For use as the root certificate of a certificate authority such as iAuthority.
