How to distribute root certificates with Cortado Server

Do you use purchased root certificates in your company? This how-to will show you how you can distribute purchased root certificates to your users' mobile devices.


Root certificates from official certification authorities are usually located on all end devices by default. When using purchased root certificates, however, the root certificate (e.g. for the exchange server) must firstly be distributed to the users’ mobile devices. Only that will ensure that SSL/TLS secured connections can be established between server and mobile devices. In this How To you will learn how to use the Cortado server to distribute your purchased root certificates onto your users’ mobile devices.


  • Open the Cortado administration portal.
  • Select Administration→ Profiles.
  • Under Global Profiles→ Certificate create a new certificate profile.
