How to manually renew root certificates in digiSeal server installations
- Installing the root certificates:
In order to verify signed documents, the root certificates used by the trust centers must be installed. You can download a zip archive with the certificates recommended by Secrypt using the following link: http://www.secrypt.de/downloads/6wb8212103bd/secrypt/certificates/secrypt_issuer_certificates.zip
Unpack the ZIP file into the certificate folder of your digiSeal product on your hard disk.
If you are using the digiSeal server, please use the configured directories. These can be found in the Administration/Basic configuration/Exhibitor certificate directory section and for each verification process in the Process configuration/Verification/Certificate directory section. Update these directories with the new certificates and restart the processes.
If you are using digiSeal Reader, you can find the folders here:
Win 7/Vista: C:\ProgramData\digiseal ****\certificates\issuer_certificates
Win XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\digiSeal ***\certificates\issuer_certificates
- Checking the authenticity of the ZIP archive:
To verify the authenticity of the Zip archive you can use the following signature: http://www.secrypt.de/downloads/6wb8212103bd/secrypt/certificates/secrypt_issuer_certificates.zip.p7s
The digiSeal reader is available to you free of charge as test software. The authenticity of the ZIP archive is confirmed when the verification has been carried out successfully and the signature has been created by us.
