  2. Select Standard Strength Certificate (2048-bit). The settings dialog for the certificate opens.
  3. Make sure that the certificate is configured with SHA256 as the SHA Fingerprint and has an X.509 PEM formatted RSA Certificate.

    Fonolo can work with PEM or DER formatted RSA certificates. DSA certificates are not currently supported.

  4. Save your changes, and then Download the certificate to a safe place for use later in setting up SSO in the Fonolo Portal.
