To use your own certificate:
  1. Run this command to generate a new keystore file that InterScan Web Security Virtual Appliance (IWSVA) will use when accessing Captive Portal:
    /etc/iscan/AdminUI/jre/bin/keytool -genkey –alias tomcat -keyalg RSA -keystore ./newcaptive.key
  2. For the first name and last name, specify the hostname of the IWSVA server. For example: iwsva.domain.com.
  3. Copy the generated keystore file into the /etc/iscan/AdminUI/tomcat directory.
  4. Back up the server.xml file in the /etc/iscan/AdminUI/tomcat/conf directory.
  5. Stop the web console service using this command:
    /etc/iscan/S99IScanHttp stop
  6. Open the server.xml file.
  7. Look for the following parameters and change the values to these:
    keystorePass=<password you set while creating the new keystore>
    keystoreFile=newcaptive.key
  8. Restart the web console service using this command:
    /etc/iscan/S99IScanHttp restart
  9. Access Captive Portal. When it shows an error message, open the certificate and ensure it has the same name as the hostname of the IWSVA server.
  10. Install the certificate and make sure it is saved under the Trusted Root tab.
  11. Access Captive Portal again.
If you get an error message that the certificate is expired, close the browser and wait for a couple minutes before accessing Captive Portal again. There should be no more error message and you should be redirected to the HTTPS site that you are trying to access.
