Adding security certificates to iOS MDM devices

18 March 2024

ID 88328

To simplify user authentication and ensure data security, add certificates on the user's iOS MDM device. Data signed with a certificate is protected against modification during network exchange. Data encryption using a certificate provides an added level of security for data. The certificate can be also used to verify the user's identity.

Kaspersky Device Management for iOS supports the following certificate standards:

  • PKCS#1 – encryption with a public key based on RSA algorithms.
  • PKCS#12 – storage and transmission of a certificate and a private key.

To add a security certificate on a user's iOS MDM device:

  1. In the console tree, in the Managed devices folder, select the administration group to which the iOS MDM devices belong.
  2. In the workspace of the group, select the Policies tab.
  3. Open the policy properties window by double-clicking.
  4. In the policy Properties window, select the Certificates section.
  5. Click the Add button in the Certificates section.

    The Certificate window opens.

  6. In the File name field, specify the path to the certificate:

    Files of PKCS#1 certificates have the cer, crt, or der extensions. Files of PKCS#12 certificates have the p12 or pfx extensions.

  7. Click Open.

    If the certificate is password-protected, specify the password. The new certificate appears in the list.

  8. Click the Apply button to save the changes you have made.

As a result, once the policy is applied, the user will be prompted to install certificates from the list that has been created.
