Replace CyberArk Vault Server Self Signed Certificate with CA Signed Certificate

By default, CyberArk Vault server will use self-signed certificate. There is an option to deploy CA signed certificate to be used to create a secure channel to a client. In this way, users can authenticate to the thrid party securely.

If you saw this message on your vault server console, you are using self-signed certificate:



"ITATP044W Security warning - Vault certificate is self-signed, It's recommended to use a CA signed certificate with the Vault's configuration"



Note: If you have DR vault, you will have to repeat this following process to DR server as well.

Generate a Cert Signing Request for the Vault

This procedure creates a private key on the Vault server and a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) to be signed by your organization's SSL.

Install your Vault Server Organization SSL Cert

This procedure installs your signed organizational SSL certificate on the Vault application.
