Wizard: CA Name

Normally with Krill when first visiting the web UI you will be prompted to enter the name of your Certificate Authority.

Krill Manager streamlines this process by asking you for the Certificate Authority name during the Krill Manager wizard. Once the wizard is complete Krill Manager will automatically create a CA in Krill by the name that you give here:

KRILL SETUP WIZARD: CA name                                   [next: Domains]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

What name would you like to use for your Certificate Authority?

Info: A Certificate Authority will be created in Krill for you using the
name that you specify.
