Enabling SSL

Enabling SSL communication security on Citrix Access Gateway

To enable the SSL facility on Citrix Access Gateway, an SSL (Digi-SSL™) certificate is required.
Digi-SSL™ certificate can be obtained directly from Digi-Sign and requires a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) code.
A CSR is a file/string containing your certificate application information, including your Public Key, Company Name and the Common Name (mostly FQDN - Fully Qualified Domain Name host name).

Overview of the Certificate Signing Request

Before you can upload a certificate to the Access Gateway, you need to generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) and private key.
