TN 8240 - SSL/TLS Certificate Installation Instructions - Cisco ASA SSL VPN

Before you begin
  • Never share private key files. 
  • If you plan on using the same certificate on multiple servers always transfer the private key using a secure method (e-mail is not considered a secure method of transfer).
  • Make sure you run the SSL Server Test at the end of the installation process to check your certificate configuration against SSL/TLS Best Practices.
