asa ca enrollment

Unanswered Question

I want to authenticate my ipsec vpn client by using certificate. I am using asa5540 as ipsec vpn server. The first step I should do is create an trustpoint and authenticate it to ca. the trustpoint name is knasaca

when I execute the command

crypto ca authenticate knasaca

I have encountered the debug output below

crypto_ca_get_ca_certificate(17793220, 169d0a0)

crypto_pki_req(17793220, 11, ...)

Crypto CA thread wakes up!

This chapter describes how to configure certificates. CAs are responsible for managing certificate requests and issuing digital certificates. A digital certificate contains information that identifies a user or device. Some of this information can include a name, serial number, company, department, or IP address. A digital certificate also contains a copy of the public key for the user or device. A CA can be a trusted third party, such as VeriSign, or a private (in-house) CA that you establish within your organization.
