Import Certificate

Before importing the certificate, please prepare either your certificate (.crt) and private key (.key), or the PKCS#12 certificate (.pfx).

Steps to import the signed certificate into your FortiGate:
  1. Log in to your FortiGate unit and go to System > Certificates.
  2. If there’s no Certificates, please click Feature Visibility and enable the Certificates.

  3. Click Import > Local Certificate.
  4. Upload the local certificate file and private key, then click OK.
  5. If you use a password to encrypt the certificate file, please fill the password as well.

  6. The certificate will be added and the status of the certificate will change from PENDING to OK.
FortiGate provides the capability to download the certificate. However, for security reasons, the private key encrypted in FortiGate cannot be accessed. To successfully restore the private key, you need to find the matched origin key to import the certificate to another FortiGate device.
