A Synergis™ Cloud Link comes with an X.509 certificate that was generated during production. Replace the default certificate to enhance security; you can generate a new self-signed certificate or generate a certificate signing request for validation by a certificate authority.


  1. Click Configuration > Certificates.
  2. Under Certificate management, complete the identification fields.
    The Common name field contains the Synergis™ unit's hostname by default. The Subject alternative name field also contains the hostname by default, but can be edited to a comma-separated DNS list.
    NOTE: The Common name, Subject alternative name and Country fields are mandatory.

  3. From the Certificate type list, select the algorithm you want to use: ECDSA or RSA. ECDSA is the default option.
  4. Click Generate new self-signed certificate or Create certificate signing request, depending on whether you will be using a self-signed certificate or sending a certificate signing request to a certificate authority for validation.
