Certificate policy lets you deploy server CA certificates, to secure and configure features such as, Wi-Fi, E-mail etc., on managed devices. This policy is ideally used to secure and validate network communications from the device to any internal or external website. By pushing certificates to devices, you can secure access to networks,servers, secure e-mail communications etc., For example, you can deploy CA certificates to the managed devices if your organization uses S/MIME to connect to a network/server. The certificates pushed to the device ensures that the devices trusts the enterprise CA. This is applicable only for Non-Samsung devices(5.0 or later), devices must be enrolled as Device Owner or Profile Owner and for Samsung devices(above 4.2).
The managed device must have a passcode set, for Certificate to be installed in the device.
|Certificate File||The file to be pushed to the managed devices|
|Password||This optional parameter must be entered if the certificate is password protected|
- The certificates are added only if the certificate files are not corrupt and the correct password is provided in case of password-protected certificates.
- On certificate expiry, upload the renewed certificate as a new certificate in the profile and then push it to the managed devices.
