Registering a Key and Certificate for Network Communication

You can use the Remote UI to register keys/certificates, CA certificates, and S/MIME certificates to the machine from your computer. You can also use it to register a certificate revocation list (CRL), which verifies the validity of certificates received from communication peers. Designate an administrator to register these items.
The communication methods listed below use a key/certificate or CA certificate. If you want to use a registered key and certificate in actual communication, you need to specify the key and certificate in the settings for each communication method. However, an X.509 DER format CA certificate does not need to be specified in the settings for each communication method. You can use it simply by registering it to the machine.
