<< Back to Knowledge Search


  1. To view a list of exportable keys on the source ProxySG appliance, log in to the Management Console and select Configuration > SSL > Keyrings. The console displays the keyrings associated with the appliance. Keyrings with exportable keys have a Yes in the Show field.
  2. To export the private key, connect to the source appliance's CLI and enter the following command:
           ssl view keypair <Keyring_Name>
 The CLI prints the private key.
  1. Copy the private key to Notepad. You can now import the key to the destination ProxySG appliance.
  2. To import the private key, log in to the Management Console of the destination appliance and select Configuration > SSL > Keyrings.
  3. To create a new keyring for the private key, click Create.
  4. Enter a Keyring Name for the new keyring.
  5. Select Import Key Ring.
  6. Paste the private key you copied from the source appliance into the Keyring text box and click OK.
  7. Click Apply.
