Certificate provisioning configurations

Last updated June 28th, 2024

You can configure certificate provisioning protocols, such as Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP), for your fleet of devices in Knox Service Plugin. SCEP automates certificate enrollment for your managed devices, and helps streamline the process by reducing manual interaction from device users.

Currently, SCEP is supported on fully managed devices running Android 14 and higher, and only supports one certificate per profile.

To configure certificate provisioning:

  1. Go to Certificate provisioning configurations, and click Configure.
  2. On the Protocol dropdown, select SCEP.
  3. Enter the information required for certificate provisioning.
    • Provision type — Specify the type of certificate provision.
    • Key Provider — Specify the type of certificate key provider.
    • Key Owner — Specify the type of certificate key owner.
