What is the Issue?

Ivanti Patch for Windows® Servers uses a self-signed SHA-2 root certificate to issue the console, agent and scheduler certificates used within the product. Some security tools, however, may see the self-signed certificate as a medium level security risk. To be clear, Ivanti Patch for Windows® Servers does not have a certificate security issue, but these tools have no way of determining that information. If you want to stop the Ivanti Patch for Windows® Servers certificate from being flagged as a warning, you have the option to use a trusted certificate authority (CA) from your own PKI infrastructure to issue a replacement root certificate for Ivanti Patch for Windows® Servers.  

This section describes the tasks you must perform if you wish to replace the default Ivanti Patch for Windows® Servers root certificate with a certificate that is issued by your own CA.
