Configuring the Peplink Balance for X.509 Authentication


#1

Peplink can use X.509 certificates for authentication on both SpeedFusion and IPSEC VPNs. The first step in using certificate authentication is working with your certificate authority to generate a private key and signed certificate for the Peplink device. The key and certificate must be encoded in PEM format. After obtaining the files you can begin installation within the Peplink web interface.

  1. Go to Network > Misc Settings > Certificate Manager to begin certificate installation. peplink-vpncert-1
  2. Click Assign for VPN Certificate. Paste in your private key and signed certificate.peplink-vpncert-2
  3. Click Save and Apply Local Certificate to complete the installation.
