Install Certificate for LiveNX Web UI
We generate and install self-signed certificates the first time LiveNX is run. Secure Web Login to LiveNX is enabled by default in LiveNX 5.3.0. This document will guide you on how to generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) for the LiveNX Web UI Client.
Certificate Signing Request (also CSR or certification request) is a message sent from an applicant to a Certificate Authority in order to apply for a digital identity certificate. It usually contains the public key for which the certificate should be issued, identifying information (such as a domain name) and integrity protection (e.g., a digital signature).
A certificate authority will use a CSR to create your SSL certificate, but it does not need your private key. You need to keep your private key secret. The certificate created with a particular CSR will only work with the private key that was generated with it. So if you lose the private key, the certificate will no longer work.
