If you already have an APNs certificate, please consider renewing it instead of creating a new one. When you replace the existing APNs certificate with a newly created one, the Administration Server loses the ability to manage the currently connected iOS mobile devices.
When the Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is created at the first step of the APNs Certificate Wizard, its private key is stored in the RAM of your device. Therefore, all the steps of the Wizard must be completed within a single session of the application.
To receive an APNs certificate:
This opens the properties window of the iOS MDM Server.
The Receive APNs Certificate Wizard starts and the Request new window opens.
The private key of the certificate is saved in the device memory.
Signing of your CSR will only be available after you upload to CompanyAccount portal a key that allows using Mobile Device Management.
After your online request is processed, you will receive a CSR file signed by Kaspersky.
We recommend that you avoid using a personal Apple ID. Create a dedicated Apple ID to make it your corporate ID. After you have created an Apple ID, link it with the organization's mailbox, not a mailbox of an employee.
After your CSR is processed in Apple Inc., you will receive the public key of the APNs certificate. Save the file on disk.
The certificate export process starts.
This password will be used for the APNs certificate installation on the iOS MDM Server.
The private and public keys of the certificate are combined, and the APNs certificate is saved in PFX format. After this, you can install the APNs certificate on the iOS MDM Server.
