Provide the Trusted Certificate to the Client

By requiring the server to authenticate itself to the client, you protect the data that is transmitted from the server to the client over HTTPS. To enable server authentication, you provide a trusted certificate to the client. The trusted certificate enables the client to verify the identity of the server during the installation.

To provide the trusted certificate to the client, assume the same user role as the web server user. Then, split the certificate to extract a trusted certificate. Then, insert the trusted certificate in the client's truststore file in the /etc/netboot hierarchy.

In this example, you assume the web server user role of nobody. Then, you split the server PKCS#12 certificate that is named cert.p12, and insert the trusted certificate in /etc/netboot directory for wanclient-1.
