Create a root key and certificate for the server hosting CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL (root.crt, root.key) - ensure you change any settings, in particular the -subj option to suit your own environment:
Ensure that the service (or the user who launches the CAST applications programs) is dedicated.
Do not put certificates and .key files in the same folder
Create a dedicated folder for .key files and only give access to the dedicated CAST user
Do not use a password on the .pfx file, otherwise you will have to enter the password each time you restart
- If you are using AIP Console to manage the AIP Node, and you have defined a dedicated CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL instance just for the Measurement schema (see the screen Configure Measurement Database in Complete start-up wizard - v. 1.x), you must ensure that you define an entry for this CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL instance in the SSLParameters.ini file and this entry MUST be present on all AIP Nodes that are being managed in AIP Console.
