  • Root & Intermediate Certificate Bundles

    Mar 9, 2020, 2:50 PM

    Some Apache and Java based applications require the Root & Intermediate certificates to be bundled in a single file. You can create a certificate bundle by opening a plain text editor (notepad, gedit, etc) and pasting in the text of the root certificate and the text of the intermediate certificate. The order they go in depends on the type of server you are running. Nginx for example concatenates all certificates in one file beginning with the server certificate.

  • Trusted Root Intermediate Certificates

    Feb 27, 2020, 2:11 AM

    This support article is all about Trusted Root Intermediate Certificates, a select service with strict requirements. PKI hierarchies allow you to control the chain of trust in your ecosystem, whether you’re implementing client authentication within an enterprise or deploying secure device identities within a supply chain. GlobalSign supports multiple hierarchy options for more flexible trust management and isolation of control, including dedicated or shared and public or private models. GlobalSign Root Certificates are already distributed in all operating systems, browsers, and mobile devices, meaning that all certificates issued from hierarchies beneath these roots are transparently trusted. For closed ecosystems, where public trust isn’t wanted or allowed, private and dedicated customer roots and intermediates are issued.
