How to Switch to a Self-Signed SSL Certificate with Secure Global Desktop (Doc ID 1373472.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 29, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Secure Global Desktop - Version 4.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


As outlined in the Secure Global Desktop Administration Guide on the Oracle Technical Network, it is possible to secure Secure Global Desktop client connections using a standard SSL certificate.  In some situations, a self-signed certiticate is required. 

This article outlines the procedure to remove an existing SSL certificate and install a new self-signed certificate. 

NOTE: Use of  "self-signed"certificates should be reserved for internal or test-only deployments.  If the server will be externally accessible, a SSL Certificate from a supported Certificate Authority should be used.  Failure to do so reduces the effectiveness of certificate based trust.   Information on SSL Certificates and supported Certificate Authorities can be found in the standard product documentation.
