You need to select the Certificate Authority (CA). Default CA is Smart ID Certificate Manager, but you have other options as well. The examples here are given with Certificate Manager as CA.

  1. To add information regarding the CA, open this article: Integrate Identity Manager with Smart ID Certificate Manager.

  2. In that article, do the following:

    1. Under heading "Create CM .zip file", do all steps.
    2. Under heading "Create a Certificate Authority in Identity Manager Admin", you do not need to create a CA since it is already set up. Just select and edit Smart ID Certificate Manager (the CA) and do the updates in the General tab as described in the article.

  3. For the included CA (in this case, Smart ID Certificate Manager), follow these steps:
    1. In Identity Manager Admin, go to Home > Certificates
    2. For each of the certificate templates, (Authentication certificate, Encryption certificate, and Signature certificate), double-click on them, one at a time, and edit them: 
      1. In the Certification Authority selection box, select the CA that shall issue this type of certificate. The available CAs are connected to the server via CA connectors and displayed here.
      2. In the Certificate Type selection box, select one of the templates supported by the CA.
        This template determines the cryptographic properties (signature algorithm) and intended purpose of the configured certificate type. The templates are determined by the Identity Manager CA connector.
