OTA Connect Developer Guide

Register the Root Certificate for your Fleet

Once you are ready to move to production, you need to have your final fleet root certificate registered with your production account. Ideally, your fleet root certificate should come from an external certificate authority (CA) who can take care of safeguarding your private key.

During testing, you might have followed our procedure to generate a self-signed root certificate and had it registered with your test account. We don’t recommend using a self-signed certificate for production because it makes you more vulnerable to security breaches. Nevertheless, if you’d prefer to stick with a self-signed certificate, you’ll need to generate another one and have it registered with your production account.

If you followed our recommendations, you should have one OTA Connect account for testing and another for production. Make sure that you specify that this certificate is for your production account.
