Create a GlobalSign MSSL certificate authority

Before you begin

You're going to need a few things to complete the CA configuration.

  • A GlobalSign account. If you don't have an account yet, go here to get started.
  • The GlobalSign Profile you want to use, if you have more than one Profile.

To create the CA

  1. Sign in to Venafi Control Plane.
  2. Click Integrations > Certificate Authorities.
  3. Click New > GlobalSign MSSL.
  4. Enter a Name that this CA should be called in TLS Protect Cloud.
  5. From the GlobalSign MSSL Server drop-down, select either Production or Staging, depending on the purpose of this CA connector.
  6. Enter the Username and Password provided by GlobalSign.
  7. Click Test Connection.
  8. After a successful connection, GlobalSign returns available profiles. If just one profile is returned, it is shown, and you can click Create.

    If multiple profiles are returned, select the one you want to use, and then click Create.

What's Next
