This is a followup of previous post about Generating Self-Signed certificate compatible with iOS 13 / macOS 10.15.
However, just using such a certificate on your server and connecting to the server is not enough.
Installing and trusting certificate on iOS 13
- Get the certificate to iOS device
- AirDrop works well. It will tell you directly “Someone would like to share a profile”
- Opening the certificate from iCloud Drive works fine
- Email should work as well
- Once received or opened, the certificate will become available in Settings
- Go to Settings → General → Profile & Device Management
- Select the new certificate in “Downloaded profile” section and check if all certificate information is correct (i.e. it is really your certificate)
- Tap “Install”, you end up on information screen, read the information 😀, tap “Install” again and confirm once again.
Certificate is installed, now it has to be trusted.
Please follow steps at Apple support page: Trust manually installed certificate profiles in iOS and iPadOS .
Installing and trusting certificate on macOS 10.15
- Import the certificate to Keychain (Double click it or drag&drop it to Keychain)
- Select the certificate in Keychain
- Cmd+I or Right click → Get Info
- Expand the Trust section
- Change “When using this certificate: to “Always trust”
- Close the window. When closing the window, you will be asked for Touch ID or password to confirm the change
- Done. The certificate will now have little plus symbol on its icon in Keychain
