Hi everyone,

I have created an ssl web certificate from an online service and got 3 files:

  • ca_bundle.crt
  • certificate.crt
  • private.key

What I have to do in order to install my SSL certificate in my Search Head?

Thank you very much for helping me!

One of the great things about Splunk documentation is the team is great about updating the docs in response to user feedback.  If there's something you don't understand in a docs.splunk.com page, submit feedback on it.

I believe .crt and .pem files are the same thing.  See https://www.ssl.com/guide/pem-der-crt-and-cer-x-509-encodings-and-conversions/#:~:text=PEM%20(origin...).

I know about this page, but I can't understand it very well. 

with OpenSSL, I have created a CSR file, which I paste it into a web service (zerossl) in order to create a SSL web certificate. Now I have got 2 files a ca_bundle.crt and a certificate.crt.

But I noticed that in Splunk .../auth/splunkweb there are 2 files but not crt, but .pem. 

How could I make it works?
