Creating an Identity Certificate

Hello all


We have a bunch of brand new BIG-IP units: 2 x LTMs & 1 x GTM per DC. The LTMs have currently been clustered together using their self-signed certs.


We wish to integrate our devices into the PKI infrastructure we have, this is where my knowledge falls short. We wish to ensure that each device has its own identity certificate, which can then be used for HTTPS/SSL when managing the device.


Silly question, but would this same identity cert also be used when we integrate the LTMs and GTMs (iQuery)? If so, do I need to do anything specifically to instruct the devices to use their ID certs? Also, by adding an ID cert per device, will this break the trust relationship that already exists between the two LTMs?


Many thanks
