Configure Your Browser to Trust the Meshlium Manager System Self-Signed Certificate

Post by libelium-dev » Fri Aug 17, 2018 7:58 am

Dear all Meshlium users,

HTTP Secure (HTTPS) is an extension of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) for secure communication (protocol is encrypted using TLS or SSL) over a computer network, and is widely used on the Internet. Web browsers know how to trust HTTPS websites based on certificate
authorities that come pre-installed in their software. Certificate authorities are in this way being trusted by web browser creators to provide valid certificates.

Most web browsers alert the user when visiting sites that have security certificates issued by authorities not pre-installed, the communication is still secured, but the user needs to install the root CA certificate in the browser (Firefox, Chrome, ...) to avoid the warning message. Meshlium devices are provided with self-signed certificate to serve ManagerSystem web interface, providing protection of the privacy and integrity of the exchanged data while in transit, protects against man-in-the-middle attacks and protects against eavesdropping and tampering all the communications between the user and the Meshlium.

Therefore, you will have to accept the Meshlium self-signed certificate in your browser. Follow the instructions below for adding the Meshlium CA in the most widely used browsers.

For more information please take a look into Meshlium technical guide or ask our colleagues through the Meshlium forum.

Regards
