Guardium Certificate Authority (CA) to sign Certificate Signing Requests (CSR) for GIM server

Currently, Guardium does not provide certificate authority (CA) services and does not ship systems with different certificates than the one installed by default. If the customer does not want to use the default certificate, they must contact a third-party CA. The problem is that the default GIM server certificate shares the same private key as every other Guardium installation. The default GIM server private key is valid for over 2 years until 26 May 2024, and there is no means to change or renew the keys. Using GIM server certificates signed by a third-party CA requires generation of certificates for each client and entails additional overhead of managing the certificate lifecycle.

The feature request is for Guardium Certificate Authority (CA) to sign Certificate Signing Requests (CSR) for GIM server.

GIM server: EMAILADDRESS=support@guardium.com, CN=GIM, OU=Support, O="Guardium, Inc.", L=Waltham, ST=Massachusetts, C=US

Guardium Certificate Authority (CA): EMAILADDRESS=support@guardium.com, CN=guardium.com, OU=Support, O="Guardium, Inc.", L=Waltham, ST=Massachusetts, C=US
