APPLIES TO: All Versions

SUMMARY:

This article covers the steps required to bulk export certificates from Digicert, followed by the instructions necessary to import those certificates into the Venafi Trust Protection Platform database. This will leverage the Venafi Server Agent’s ability to discover and upload certificates into the TPP database.

NOTE: For the purposes of the instructions in this article, it is assumed that you have the necessary credentials to access Digicert’s CertCentral.

OVERVIEW

The bulk import process follows these high-level steps. Details for each step are documented below.

  1. Export certificates from Digicert CertCentral
  2. Parse text export file
  3. Import certificates into Venafi Trust Protection Platform

After a few moments, your download will complete. Save the resultant text file to the system which will be scanned using the Venafi Server Agent.

PARSE THE TEXT EXPORT FILE

To parse the text file, you will need to either contact Customer Support, or make a request through your Professional Services consultant. Venafi has proprietary tools which are able to parse the text file and output the certificates as individual .crt files. This way, they can be easily imported using the Agent Bulk Import process described in the next section.

IMPORT CERTIFICATES INTO VENAFI TRUST PROTECTION PLATFORM

With the feature release of the Adaptable CA driver in version 19.1, the Trust Protection Platform is able to integrate with a multitude of Certificate Authorities and perform various functions utilizing API/SDK endpoints and custom PowerShell scripts.

In versions 18.4 and earlier, this process leverages the Venafi Server Agent’s ability to discover and upload certificates into the TPP database.  This process also properly prevents any attempt to import ‘duplicate’ certificates into the database.
