Generate SSL/HTTPS keys
During the install process, PaperCut NG/MF generates self-signed keys/ certificates with default attributes, which can also be customized further. For more information, see Use the PaperCut NG/MF self-signed certificate.
While these self-signed certificates provide good security, the following warnings are still displayed when users access HTTPS sites using a fully-qualified domain name:
The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority
You can, however, eliminate these warnings to provide a smoother experience for users.
To avoid the:
“Domain mismatch” warning—Use the PaperCut NG/MF self-signed certificate to use the machine’s fully qualified domain name (FQDN).
“The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority” and the “Domain mismatch” warning — Use a trusted certificate.
