12. Implementing SCEP on a Cisco Device

Cisco literally invented SCEP, so it’s no surprise that devices such as their ASA security appliances support it. However, as with other devices, SCEP is not simple to set up on Cisco hardware.

Before we get into this, I’ll throw out a caveat: Stop right now if you are not familiar with the Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS, as opposed to iOS), configuring Cisco devices, and SSL. As tricky as it can be to set up SCEP on other platforms, making a mistake with a network appliance can ruin your entire day or year. Make sure you have good backups of your running configuration, and don’t commit any changes until you’ve tested them.
