Cisco Unified Mobility Adv 7 - ASA certificates issue

Unanswered Question
Jun 30th, 2010

Dear All,

I have Mobility Advantage 7 that i am trying to use with CUCM 7.1 and ASA.
Now i have come to know that you must have a certificate from Verisign or Geotrust installed in the ASA in order for the mobility to work.

Is there any other way we can make the mobility work without OR self-signed certificates???

its urgent and any help in this reference is higly appreciated.


I have this problem too.

If I recall correctly, we did a pilot of CUMA and we did not have to have a

certificate from Verisign. Since it was a pilot, the customer didn't want to

pay for the cert if it wasn't going to be needed long term. So, we used a

self-signed cert on the ASA. The "problem" or side-effect was that the

mobile users were constantly prompted to state they trusted the cert. In a

way, our hands were tied with respect to trying to make that cosmetic issue

disappear. It was an all BB shop and the admin had tight controls on the


Regardless, my recollection is that we were able to get away with it but

that if the customer decided to go full bore that we would need to do the

Verisign cert.
