Using certificates that are signed by an internal certificate authority

If the certificate is issued by an internal certificate authority and not a commercial certificate provider, IBM® QRadar® must be updated to include the internal root certificate into the local certificate store for proper certificate validation. Root verification certificates are automatically included with the operating system.
