Error during import 'Certificate signature does not match contents'

Technote (troubleshooting)


When you import and merge a trusted root certificate into a Lotus Domino server's SSL keyring, the following message occurs:

    "Certificate Signature does not match Certificate Content".


This error occurs when the trusted root certificate is 4096-bit. Domino 7 and earlier releases do not support this size of key.

Resolving the problem

This issue has been reported to Quality Engineering as SPR# KEMG6DJPCC.

Notes/Domino 8.0 adds support for 4096-bit RSA keys for both Lotus Notes and Internet certifiers.
