Viewing Certificate Information
Certificates are grouped by type in the left pane of the Secure Shell Management Console:
- User Certificates—Click to view the user certificates stored in the my.hcs file. These certificates were either created or imported by you, and signed by Certificate Authorities (CA) or system administrators.
- Server or Intermediate Certificate Authorities—Click to view the certificates stored in the ca.hcs file. These certificates belong to the commercial or private CAs that are below the root CAs in the certificate chain.
- Trusted Root Certificate Authorities—Click to view the certificates stored in the root.hcs file. These certificates belong to the top-level (or parent) CAs who sign their own certificates. Generally, they establish trust by publishing their public keys widely.
Changing .hcs files manually is not recommended.
To view the details of a certificate:
Click the certificate type in the left pane. In the list pane that appears on the right, double-click the certificate to open the Certificate Information window.
