Removing the private key of an identity (while keeping the certificate)
After an identity - user, server or smart card - has been created on the firewall and issued to the end user (in general, in an encrypted PKCS#12 container), for security and confidentiality reasons, you may want to delete the private key of the identity to avoid keeping a copy on the firewall.
To remove the private key of an identity:
- Select the identity from the list on the left.
- Click on Actions.
- Select Remove private key.
A message will appear confirming its removal.
