certificate store overview

has a certificate store used to validate certificates when forming connections to other servers. The certificates in the store are trusted certificate authority (CA) certificates from mkcert.org and are updated periodically. In almost all cases, can use its certificate store to validate any certificate issued by a commercial certificate authority (CA).

The default certificate store cannot be used to validate self-signed certificates, or certificates issued by an internal CA. You must add these custom certificates to the certificate store.

Different types of certificates are stored in different certificate stores:

Certificate type Storage location Additional information
SOAR Certificates <$PHANTOM_HOME>/etc/certs/ Add certificates to the <$PHANTOM_HOME>/etc/cacerts.pem file using the import_cert.py tool, located in <$PHANTOM_HOME>/bin/. See Add or remove certificates from the certificate store.
SOAR HTTP Certificates <$PHANTOM_HOME>/etc/ssl/ For more information about how to change the TLS certificate on the platform, see Provide a valid SSL certificate for the connection between Splunk Phantom and Splunk Enterprise in the Use the Splunk Phantom App for Splunk to Forward Events documentation.
SOAR Encryption and SAML Certificates <$PHANTOM_HOME>/etc/keystore/ For more information about how to change the SAML certificate on the platform, see How to Rotate the Signing and/or Encryption Certs in Phantom for SAML.
