Setting Trusted Certificates

Page last updated:

This topic covers how to set trusted certificates in the BOSH Director tile of your Pivotal Platform deployment.

  1. Navigate to the BOSH Director tile from the Ops Manager Installation Dashboard.

  2. Select Security.

  3. In Trusted Certificates, enter your custom certificate authority (CA) certificates to insert into your organization’s certificate trust chain. This feature enables all BOSH-deployed components in your deployment to trust custom root certificates.

    To enter multiple certificates, paste your certificates one after the other. For example, format your certificates like the example below:

    -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
    ABCDEFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678AB
    EFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABCDEF
    GH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678...
    ------END CERTIFICATE------
    -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
    BCDEFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABB
    EFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABCDEF
    GH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678...
    ------END CERTIFICATE------
    -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
    CDEFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABBB
    EFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABCDEF
    GH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678ABCDEFGH12345678...
    ------END CERTIFICATE------

    Note: If you want to use Docker registries to run TAS for VMs app instances in Docker containers, enter the certificate for your private Docker registry in this field. For more information about running app instances in TAS for VMs using Docker registries, see Using Docker Registries.

  4. To include the Ops Manager root CA in the Trusted Certificates field, select the Include OpsManager Root CA in Trusted Certs checkbox. BOSH Director includes this CA in the trust store of every VM that it deploys.

    Warning: If you are using Ops Manager to generate certificates for either a load balancer or router, then you must select this checkbox.

  5. Click Save.
