Setting Credentials

Here and there I’ve talked about certificates and SSL. Well, if you have your own web or email servers and you’re using SSL, you’re going to have your own certificates for them. Or maybe you’re using certs for Exchange or your VPN. If you want to install them on the iOS devices that need them, here’s where you do it (Figure 4.15).

And it’s pretty simple. When you click the Add (+) button in the main Credentials pane, you’ll see a dialog that asks you to locate the cert file you want to use. Navigate to the file, click Open, and if it’s a valid cert file, you’re ready to go. As with Email, CalDAV, Exchange ActiveSync, and other settings, you can create multiple entries here. When you install this profile, the certificates are installed on the device, and ready for use.
