Self signed certificates

Dudes,

Is it possible to use self signed certificates for IPSec VPN?, I do not want to use preshared keys and third party CA for authentication.

If yes how do we do that.

Many thanks,

Rajesh

I have seen that, It involves third party CA servers, I do not want to inlvolve CA's like Microsoft, Verisign, etc,

Thanks,

Rajesh

Wel - you need to generate the CSR, then you need a cert auth to validate the CSR. You cannot do this without a CA - the other options are in Unix/Linux - they can also sign/generate CSR's.

The Cisco ASA will not generate and sign certs for people/devices other than itself.

Re: Self signed certificates

Andrew,

My requirement is to establish VPN tunnel between two Cisco routers with self signed certicates, i.e wanted to replace pre-shared keys with the certificates signed by router itself.

Is that possible on cisco routers?

Thanks,

Rajesh
