To create a new signing certificate, you specify the certificate settings and the certificate key settings.
You can also use the signing certificate to create a CSR.
Note: Security is a function of the combination of algorithm and key size. A larger key size provides higher security but may take longer to sign messages.
- In the PingOne admin portal, go to .
- Click .
Under the Certificate Settings tab, enter the certificate
- Common name. The common name (CN) identifying the certificate.
- Organization. The organization (O) or company name creating the certificate.

- Country. The two-letter ISO code for the country where your organization is located (such as US, GB, CA).
- Select Make certificate default to make this the default certificate for new application connections.
Specify the certificate key settings:
- Validity (Days). The number of days until the certificate expires (defaults to 365).
- Key Algorithm. The algorithm used to generate a key (RSA or ECC). Defaults to RSA.
- Key Size (Bits). The number of bits used in the key. Defaults to 2048.
- Signature Algorithm. The algorithm used to generate a signature. Defaults to RSA SHA256.
The certificate appears in the certificate list.
