Need to understand what certificates are... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I need help with certificates. I have been reading a little about it but it is not clear to me how this works.

    Here are the things that I am confuse with:

    - what are chained certificates? (when you ask for this to the Certificate Authority (like godaddy) you receive 3 certificates? root, intermediate and device?)

    - The same question goes for unchained. I read somewhere that this only came with 2 certificates (root and device).

    - When readin this document I don't understand what they mean by ca "certificate". There comes my confusion.

    This is the document: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/wireless/4400-series-wireless-lan-controllers/100864-wgb-eap-tls-cuwn.html

    How all of this works when I am using the eap methods. How do I know which is the file that should go where?

    Please, help with this.
