Permits downloading of a private key from files stored in a TFTP server.
|ipaddress||Specifies the IP address of the TFTP server.|
|key_file||Specifies the name of the private key file.|
If the operation is successful, the existing private key is overwritten.
After a successful download, a check is performed to find out whether the private key downloaded matches the public key stored in the certificate. If the private and public keys do not match, the switch displays a warning similar to the following: Warning: The Private Key does not match with the Public Key in the certificate. This warning acts as a reminder to also download the corresponding certificate.
The certificate and private key file should be in PEM format and generated using RSA as the cryptography algorithm.
Downloaded certificates and keys are not saved across switch reboots unless you save your current switch configuration. Once you issue the save command, the downloaded certificate is stored in the configuration file and the private key is stored in the EEPROM.
