Invalid Certificate Identifier





Unable to import a SSL certificate into the LoadMaster


Product: LoadMaster

Version: Any

Platform: Any

Application: Any

Question/Problem Description:

When trying to upload a SSL certificate with keyword "ident" in it, the LoadMaster throws an "Invalid Certificate Identifier" error.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Attempt to import a SSL certificate with the string "ident" as shown below:


2. An error will be thrown as seen below:


Error Message: "Invalid Certificate Identifier"
Defect Number: PD-10097
Enhancement Number:  

There is a form element called "ident" for the "Certificate Identifier".

When unpacking the form POST data and looking for the "ident" element, the first matching string for "ident" it comes across is the name of the file being uploaded. The data after this is the cert blob, which of course is not a valid Certificate Identifier.


The certificate name cannot contain the string "ident" and it must be removed.

NOTE: The certificate name can be easily confused with the Certificate Identifier. The certificate identifier is simply a friendly name for the SSL certificate while the certificate name is the actual filename of the SSL certificate.


As a workaround, the certificate name can be modified and it will be imported successfully afterwards.
