If PingAccess is running in Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) mode, only PEM-encoded key pairs can be imported or exported.

For more information, see Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Mode.

  1. Click Security and then go to Key Pairs.
  2. Click Import.
  3. In the Alias field, enter a name that identifies the key pair.

    Special characters and spaces are allowed. This name identifies the key pair when assigning the key pair to various configurations such as HTTPS Listeners.

  4. In the Password field, enter a password used to protect the key pair file.

    PingAccess uses the password to read the file.

  5. Click Choose File to locate the key pair file.
  6. Click Save to import the file.

    If the key pair is either expired or not yet valid, PingAccess displays a warning, but the import will proceed. If the key pair cannot be read using the specified password, the import fails.
