Note: The digital certificates described in this article only apply to the BYOC Premises. For information on digital certificates for BYOC Cloud, see TLS trunk transport protocol specification.

Digital certificates ensure the identification of a trusted authority through encryption. Genesys Cloud supports two types of digital certificates: Managed and Remote.

Managed

There is only one managed digital certificate for your Genesys Cloud organization and it is set up and managed by Genesys. Genesys Cloud uses this managed certificate authority to create trusted TLS connections for components such as the Edge and managed phones. This managed certificate authority also allows remote SIP devices to trust and accept secure connections to External Trunks connected to the Edge.

Remote

You can add remote certificate authorities in Genesys Cloud by importing the digital certificate files issued to your organization. These remote digital certificates allow the Edge to trust a remote TLS endpoint.

Note: You cannot add, edit, or delete managed certificate authorities. The Type column identifies certificate authorities as managed or remote.
