Introduction:

One of the Prerequisites for uploading a Module through the Policy Manager is that Modules must be signed. Unsigned Modules or Unverified Signed Modules will be rejected to prevent Malware. 

Question:

How can custom assertions be signed so they are able to be uploaded via 'Manage Server Module Files'?

 

Answer:

Currently, CA does not provide customers with the ability to sign custom assertions.

To have them signed by CA please follows these steps:

1) Open a case with API Gateway Support Team through the CA Support Portal (https://support.ca.com) requesting a custom assertion to be signed

2) Attach the Modules file(s) to the case.

The team will sign the assertion(s) and provide the resulting file(s) back to you via the case.
