Configure the Web Server Certificate for Firebox Authentication

When users connect to your Firebox with a web browser, they often see a security warning. This warning occurs because the default certificate is not trusted, or because the certificate does not match the IP address or domain name used for authentication. You can use a third-party or self-signed certificate that matches the IP address or domain name for user authentication. You must import that certificate on each client browser or device to prevent the security warnings.

If you use a certificate for authentication, it is important to track when the certificates expire. This helps to avoid disruptions in critical services such as VPN.
