Importing A Windows Based Certificate Into a F5 LTM

The following steps will allow you to import a Windows based certificate and private key (PFX format) to your LTM:

1) Export the SSL and Key in PFX format from the Certificates MMC on the Windows server

2) SCP the PFX file to the /var/tmp/ directory on your LTM

3) SSH into your LTM and issue the following command:

openssl pkcs12 -in /var/tmp/.pfx -nodes -out /var/tmp/.pem

4) After executing the command OpenSSL will ask you for the password for the private key. If you exported the PFX from Windows with a password, enter it here, otherwise simply press enter to specify a blank password.

5) Once complete, SCP the .pem off of the LTM and use the Web GUI to
import the SSL certificate and key to the LTM
