To use a Certificate Authority (CA) certificate for the Orion Web Console, create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR).

CSR or Certificate Signing request is a block of encrypted text that is generated on the server that the certificate will be used on. It contains information that will be included in your certificate, such as your organization name, common name (domain name), locality, and country.
