firewall ssh local-ca

Use this command to define trusted/untrusted CAs for host key signing. Any host key signed by the trust CA is trusted unless the host key is revoked.

FortiGate has two built-in SSH CAs:

  • Fortinet_SSH_CA
  • Fortinet_SSH_CA_Untrusted

The CAs are used to re-sign a server host key with local host-key using the trusted/untrusted CA when the server host key is trusted or untrusted.
