Sonicwall DPI SSL certification

HI
I'm just implementing a DPI inspection and I've download a key from my sonicwall firewall.
This cert. has been distributed to my PC over GPO.
How do I distribute the same cert to my MAC clients  ??

Hi wannabecraig,

Provided you are in a Microsoft environment and are supporting Macs and if you are using or want to use SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager) there is a slick way to deploy Certificates to Macs just as you would normally once configured to do so.

Basically, you install SCCM client agents on the Macs and manage them in SCCM, which requires PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) certificates. Once you have the PKI in place, then SCCM can request & install a user client certificate via Microsoft Certificate Services with an enterprise CA (Certification Authority), the SCCM enrollment point & enrollment proxy point site system roles. If you don’t have PKI in place, you can request and install a computer certificate independently from SCCM if the certificate meets the requirements for SCCM. The whole idea of deploying PKI certificates is to secure the communication between the Macs & the SCCM.

Here's a really good step-by-step guide on how to do this: https://prajwaldesai.com/deploy-pki-certificates-for-sccm-2012-r2/

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Unfortunately MACs can not be GPO-Managed...

You will have to manually inject the certificate into the MACs

Or find a 3rd party software that can either manage the MACs like AD GPOs, or some other solution.
