Select network settings

ūüöß

You cannot change these network settings after you create a new certificate.

How to

To choose the network settings for your certificate:

  1. Leave Excludes China and Russia selected under Geographical Deployment, or select Includes China, Excludes Russia or Includes Russia, Excludes China.

    ūüďė

    You can only modify this field to include China if your ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč contract specifies your ability to do so and you have approval from the Chinese government. You can only modify this field to include Russia if your ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč contract specifies your ability to do so. You do not need approval from the Russian government. CPS automatically includes Russia for a standard TLS contract.

  2. Select one of the following in the Deployment Network section to choose the type of ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč network to which you want to deploy your certificate:

    • Standard TLS: Provides a rich set of TLS and HTTPS functionality architected to provide high-performance, and massively scalable delivery of media assets and website content using customer branded certificates supporting SNI compatible devices.

    • Enhanced TLS: Provides a rich set of TLS and HTTPS functionality architected for sites and content with high-assurance security requirements, such as PCI compliance, using customer branded certificates.

    ūüďė

    To use this certificate with a configuration in Property Manager, the selected deployment network on the certificate must match the selected security option in the property configuration.

  3. Enable SNI in the SNI-Only field (if your contract allows it) and allow a server to present multiple certificates on the same IP address and TCP port number and, therefore, allows multiple secure (HTTPS) websites (or any other Service over TLS) to be served off the same IP address without requiring all those sites to use the same certificate.

    If this option appears grayed out, your contract does not allow this. If you enable SNI-Only, CPS directs traffic using all the SANs listed in the SANs field. If you want to change this after you finish creating your certificate, edit your deployment settings to change the SANs. If you change the SANs at a later time, be aware that this generates a new certificate signing request (CSR).

  4. Click Review.

You can review all your choices before submitting the CSR to the CA.
