Palo Alto SSL Certificate Upgrade

Below is one way to upgrade a 3rd Party cert before it expires. Get the PFX file and password from the team that handles the certificates.

The only browser I’ve had luck with doing this is Firefox. Chrome/Brave and Edge gave me problems but Firefox always seems to work. If you have it, IE also worked.

1. Go to Certificates
Device, Certificate Management, Certificates

2. Import PFX file and fill in the information below
Select “Import

Certificate Type: Local
Certificate Name: SAME name that’s being used
Certificate File: Location for the PFX file
File Format: Select “Encrypted Private Key and Certificate (PKCS12)
Passphrase: PW for PFX

3. Commit the config

It should look something like this:


That’s it, you’re done.
