Add a certificate to EAA

How to add or upload a certificate to the EAA service.

To authenticate an application with a non-Akamai certificate, you first need to add the certificate to Enterprise Application Access (EAA).

You can add a certificate with any one of these methods:

  • Manually. You manually paste the contents of the certificate into a specific field, provide the private key, and if applicable, a password for the certificate. Make sure that the certificate is in .pem format.
  • File Upload. You upload the .crt file and if applicable, provide the password for the certificate.
  • Certificate Authority (CA). You upload the .crt file from the certificate authority.

If you choose to upload a certificate and you have multiple certificates that you want to upload, you can upload a certificate file that contains more than one certificate.
