Managing Certificate Profiles

A Certificate Profile defines the constraints of the certificate, for example, what keys it can use, and what the extensions will be.

This section describes how to use the Manage Certificate Profiles page to create and edit Certificate Profiles and includes instructions for creating a Certificate Profile.

For more information about the concepts of Certificate Profiles, see the Certificate Profiles Overview and for information on available Certificate Profiles Fields, see Certificate Profile Fields.

Manage Certificate Profiles
