AP Certificates RSA Keys

RSA is an algorithm for public key cryptography. It's the first algorithm known to be suitable for signing, as well as encryption.

The RSA Keys screen displays a list of RSA keys installed in the selected access point. RSA Keys are generally used for establishing a SSH session, and are a part of the certificate set used by RADIUS, VPN and HTTPS.

To view the access point's RSA Key details:

  1. Select the Statistics menu from the Web UI.
  2. Expand the System node from the navigation pane (on the left-hand side of the screen). The System node expands to display the RF Domains created within the managed network.
  3. Expand an RF Domain node, and select one of it's connected access points. The access point's statistics menu displays in the right-hand side of the screen, with the Health tab selected by default.
  4. Expand the Certificates menu.
  5. Select RSA Keys.
    The Statistics > AP > Certificates > RSA Keys screen displays by default right-hand pane.
    Click to expand in new window

    The RSA Key Details field describes the size (in bits) of the desired key. If not specified, a default key size of 1024 is used.

    The RSA Public Key field describes the public key used for encrypting messages. This key is known to everyone.

  6. Periodically select Refresh to update the screen's statistics counters to their latest values.
