Deploying certificate to Macs
12/03/2015 2053 views
Hello. New member here. I need to deploy certificates for our Macs and was wondering how others go about this. I'm thinking that the server these systems need access to will have a self signed cert from an internal CA. I believe what I need to do is install a root certificate on all the Macs so that they trust this server implicitly. I am vaguely familiar with importing certs into the keychain but I'm a little unclear on the sequence of events. I'm thinking copy the root cert to the machine (probably /var/temp), import the cert and then somehow get the machine to trust that cert. It's the trusting the cert part where I'm a bit unclear.
I know this can be done by other means, particularly profile manager, but we have a K1000/K2000 environment with the Macs already in KACE so I'd prefer to use what we have. Any help appreciated.
