Hello Cisco community,
As I was building the chain of trust on a router, I realized that there are two commands that seem to do the same.
In order to add the intermediary certificate to a trustpoint I normally would use the command:
crypto pki authenticate subca
After that I would add the router certificate to that trustpoint with the following command:
crypto pki import subca certificate
Here are my questions:
Could I use the command crypto pki authenticate subca to import the router certificate or does the router do something different with the crypto pki import subca certificate?
It seems like common practice to create a separate trustpoint for the root certificate and create another one for the subca and the router certificate. What's the idea behind that.
Any input is appreciated. Thank you.
thank you for your reply. You say that you can't combine multiple certificates into one single trustpoint.
--> A lot of documentation recommends to put both the Sub-Ca and the Router Certificate into one common trustpoint.
Can you comment on that?
you mentioned: "For question two, you can't combine multiple certificates to single
The question was, why a lot of documentation suggests to put multiple certificates e.g. SubCa and Server Certificate into one common trustpoint.
