About Device Certificates

You can use a certificate-based solution to ensure that only trusted devices can use the Vocera Collaboration Suite application to connect to the VMP Server.

To employ this solution, contact your IT administrator and obtain a root and child certificate pair for use in your VMP and VCS environment. This certificate pair should not be used for any other purpose.

The root certificate is then installed on the VCS devices that are to be trusted. You can install this certificate in any of the following ways:

Note: Each VCS device must have the same root certificate.

The child or leaf certificate of the root certificate is then installed on the VMP Server. See Uploading a Device Certificate for details on how to install this child or leaf certificate.

Note: For technical details on the certificate and public key pinning solution used here, see Certificate and Public Key Pinning.
