  2. Enter a name for the CA certificate, for example My_CA.
  3. Select Root CA as the Certificate type.
  4. Enable Use NetHSM, and choose an HSM server from the dropdown menu.

    Once your CA certificate has been created, it can be exported and installed on your network. For more information on setting up a certificate authority, see FortiAuthenticator as a Certificate Authority.
