Install certificates on your AWS Greengrass core device

  1. Download the AWS IoT root CA certificate from Symantec/Verisign.

  2. Copy the AWS Greengrass core's private key and certificate and the AWS IoT root CA certificate into the /greengrass/configuration/certs directory of your AWS Greengrass core device. Use the following names:

    File Description

    cloud.pem.crt

    The AWS Greengrass core certificate downloaded from the console (for example, 61970a435c.pem.crt).

    cloud.pem.key

    The private key downloaded from the console (for example, 61970a435c-private.pem.key).

    root-ca.pem

    The AWS IoT root CA certificate from Symantec.

    Note

    You can use the scp command to copy the files to your AWS Greengrass core device. By default, you do not have permission to copy the files directly to /greengrass/configuration/certs. To work around this, copy the files to your user directory and then use sudo mv file-name to move the files to the /greengrass/configuration/certs directory.
