Managing applications in DCM

Digital Certificate Manager (DCM) allows you to create application definitions and manage an application's certificate assignment. You can also define CA trust lists that applications use as the basis of accepting certificates for client authentication.

You can use DCM, to perform various management tasks for Transport Layer Security (TLS) enabled applications and object signing applications. For example, you can manage which certificates your applications use for TLS communications sessions. The application management tasks that you can perform vary based on the type of application and the certificate store in which you are working. You can manage applications from the *SYSTEM or *OBJECTSIGNING certificate stores only.

While most application management tasks that DCM provides are easy to understand, a few of these tasks may not be familiar to you. For more information about these tasks, review these topics:
