Save certificate to file

There are different ways to save a certificate to a file:

  • When soft tokens and attribute certificates are issued you can normally save a copy of the certificate in a file specified in File for Media. You need write access to the location where the certificate is to be stored.
  • You can also double-click on a certificate icon in the Issued Certificates dialog box in CC, when the certificate has just been issued. A certificate viewer is shown. Use the Copy to file button in the viewer to make a copy.

  • A third way is to view the certificate in CC as described in View and verify certificates in Certificate Manager and double-click on the certificate icon. Use the Copy to file button in the viewer to make a copy.
