Each Director requires a default certificate, a web internal certificate, and a web external certificate. For details about the certificate requirements for Directors, see Certificate Requirements for Internal Servers in the Planning documentation.

Use the following procedure to configure Director certificates. Repeat the procedure for each Director. The steps of this procedure describe how to configure a certificate from an Internal Enterprise Root certification authority (CA) deployed by your organization and with offline request processing. For details about obtaining certificates from an external CA, contact your support team.
