Installing GoDaddy SSL Certificates on a Cisco IOS Router using CLI
I have found the process of getting a GoDaddy certificate installed on an IOS router had, like many Cisco projects, become a research project. The process is poorly documented and much of the documented commands are outdated due to the changes in IOS. I hope this helps save some time and energy on your part.
This design assumes a recent 12.4.x version of IOS and being familar with the GoDaddy certificate process.
Make sure your routers time is correct before starting. I suggest you setup NTP to keep the routers time correct. If the routers time is not correct, it will affect the certificate's functionality.
- Create a 2048 bit RSA key.
- Create the trustpoint.
- Create the certificate request.
- Submit the request to GoDaddy and retreive the certificates.
- Install the intermedate certificate bundle.
- Install the certificate.
