SSL certificate

Last Updated: Feb 28, 2018 01:29PM PST

NooBaa uses a self-signed certificate by default. 

Some applications can't tolerate self-signed certificate, and in general, these certificates considered as a bad practice, for security reasons. 

If you wish to upload a valid certificate, please zip both certificate and private key in a zip. 

Make sure that both are in PEM format. 

For example, if you have a certificate named mytest_com.cert and a key named mytest_com.key, 
run the following command:
zip -0 mytest*

In NooBaa, navigate to management -> Configuration -> SSL Certificate and upload the zip file. 


Uploading SSL cartificate failed: The provided certificate is invalid
in most of the case, the problem is that the certificate is in binary format, instead of 
Try the following command to verify:
cat server.cert
If the output is printable, please contact
If the output is not printable, the file format can be either PKCS12 or DER format. 
In order to identify the format, run the following command:

openssl x509 -in server_DER_format.cert -inform DER -text
If it is a DER format, you will be able to see a clear text certificate. 
Convert DER to PEM with the following command:

openssl x509 -inform der -in server_DER_format.cert -out server.cert
Now zip the server certificate with the matching key and try to upload again.

If it's a PKCS12 format, you will get an error
unable to load certificate
Assuming it's PKCS12, you can convert it to PEM with the following command:

openssl pkcs12  -in server_PKCS_format.cert -out server.cert -nodes -nokeys -nomac -chain

Open server.cert and remove all the lines before 


Now zip the server certificate with the matching key and try to upload again.

Uploading SSL cartificate failed: end of central directory record signature not found
Usually indicates a problem with the zip. Please make sure that you zip the files without any hierarchy
