In order to complete the Branch Site Tasks, the following series of steps must be completed:

  1. Generate a certificate signing request for the SBA.
  2. Submit the certificate signing request to a Trusted Certificate Authority (CA)
  3. Import the signed certificate (received from the CA) onto the ASM

These steps can be achieved in a single step by #Auto-Generate and Importing an SBA Certificate, or you can #Generate an SBA Certificate Signing Request and have it signed by the Trusted CA of your choice and later importing it manually onto the SBA.
